“Is Google Making Us Stupid?” by Nicholas Carr: Write an essay that makes an argument (i.e., presents your opinion) about the subject matter of one of the following readings:
Your essay should include the three components below:
IntroductionPreview the document: Here you will present the general topic or subject matter of your essay. Your goal in this paragraph is to capture your readers’ attention and engage them in the topic, using your own words and ideas. Near the middle of your introduction, you should briefly introduce the reading you have chosen to respond to, as well as the author’s thesis, using one of the following “main idea sentences”:
According to [author’s full name], in the [type of text], [title of text], [author’s thesis in your own words].
In the [type of text], [title of text], author [author’s full name] argues/discusses/explains/describes, etc. [author’s thesis in your own words].
In the last sentence of the introduction, you will present your thesis (i.e., your opinion in response to the author’s thesis). Your introduction should be between ½ to ¾ of a page.
Response: Your body paragraphs will offer your opinion on the topic. In this section, you will begin with clear topic sentences that restate your thesis (whether you agree or disagree with the author’s work that you’ve chosen to respond to). Your topic sentences will provide the reasons for your opinions (your main ideas) and offer supporting details to illustrate your points and persuade your readers to accept your argument. Here are some additional tips:
Each body paragraph must include 1–2 direct quotesPreview the document from the text. These quotes are “they say” statements with which you can agree or disagree. Essentially, they should be used to advance your argument.
In your support, you may include personal experience, examples from people you know, and/or quotations from other texts that we’ve read.
Use the “I Say” templates in TSIS, Chapter 4 to help you clearly respond to the author’s argument: agree—but with a difference (“Yes”); disagree—and explain why (“No”); or agree and disagree simultaneously (“Okay, But”).
ConclusionPreview the document: This final paragraph should briefly restate the author’s thesis and your thesis. Then, you should answer the questions, “So what? Who cares?” See TSIS, Chapter 7 for help with saying why it matters. You may want to give advice to your readers about the topic you’ve discussed in your essay. Your conclusion should be about 2/3 of the page to develop this advice properly.
Organize and develop your body paragraphs according to PIEPreview the document.
Properly introduce and cite any quoted material using MLA format as well as the Quote SandwichPreview the document templates from TSIS, Chapter 3. Be sure to distinguish what you say from what the author says (see TSIS, Chapter 5).
Use transitions to show your organizational plan or the logical progression of ideas (i.e., guide your reader from one point to the next). See TSIS, Chapter 8 as well as the Index of Templates for Commonly Used Transitions (pp. 763–764).
Proofread for grammar, spelling, and punctuation.
