Project 3 Proposal

Please complete the Project 3 Proposal by Monday. Look around. Find some similar examples (mentor texts!) to use as models!

Here is a link:

HW – Stedman

Read “Annoying Ways People Use Sources”  by Kyle Stedman and write a response to the questions below:

    • What did you learn from reading this? Anything new? What questions or comments do you have on how to use sources?
    • Using one of your “quotables” from Unit 2 in that paragraph try to write a paragraph response to the quote. Be sure to keep Stedman’s guidelines in mind while writing this paragraph. Be kind to your audience! Try not to lose them by the side of the road!

HW – Carr

Read “Is Google Making Us Stupid” by Nicholas Carr and write response to the questions below. 

  • What did you think of this text? Explain! Don’t worry if you don’t like it, you won’t hurt my feelings! Be honest! 
  • What is it mostly about? Write a 2-3 sentence summary. Be specific. Refer to the text itself. Use quotes even! 
  • What is the genre of the text? What is the tone?
  • Who do you think is the intended audience of the piece? Who is meant to read this text?
  • What do you think is the purpose of this text? Why do you think the author wrote it?
  • So what does Carr think, is Google making us stupid? How does he explain it? 
  • Think about one time you used Google recently, describe it!
  • Now what do you think? Do you agree or disagree?
