One thought on “Social media Vs. Teens

  1. Sal, I like that you want to explore how social media affects’ “kids” (do you mean teenagers? younger children? what specific demographic are you researching?), but since your research proposal is only a few lines long, I don’t really have a sense of the project at all.

    Like your proposal, your annotations do not follow the requirements/guidelines for the assignment. For the next draft, which we will peer review in class on Tuesday, please revise according to the assignment so that I and your classmates will have a fuller sense of your project, and can provide substantive feedback.
