Pop Culture Is Killing Writing

Pop culture is definitely not killing writing, in fact it is only increasing writing. Pop culture signifies stories and media coverage that require lots of written pieces to be delivered on media outlets. Whether it be on television or an app on your phone, stories present on these platforms are written, and the more that pop culture grows, the more stories there will be. According to the text, some may argue that “Students who read too many comics, watch too much television, or play too many digital games, according to this narrative, will produce naı̈ve, emotional writing that is riddled with errors.” To disagree with this judgement, I would say that Pop culture serves as a spare key in the case that free writing becomes bland; pop culture and its effect on the writer can enhance the way they write by reminding them of a feeling or memory that the subject pertained to. The author disagrees with the statement that reads ‘Pop Culture Is Killing Writing,’ and defends his argument; in the text he says “The ease with which students can interpret a form of popular culture has developed with practice, which at some point included struggle, help from others, and accumulating knowledge—in other words, learning.” This quote explains how the information that Pop Culture is giving children serves as an exercise for strengthening the way they learn as well as read and write. The article is very interesting and gives insight into different perspectives, every case varies according to what type of information a person is retaining, not everything in Pop Culture is bad, but not everything is good either.
