–(re-)Watch our Zoom as a reference for thinking about what a scholarly article is.
- Briefly compare Lane’s “Addicted to Addiction” and Griffiths et al’s “The Evolution of Internet Addiction.” One of these is a scholarly article, published in a scholarly journal; the other is not. In your response, tell me which of these articles you think is a “scholarly” article and explain to me how you know this. (You do not need to read much of the articles to answer this.). BONUS: Tell me which of these texts you prefer and why. MEGA-BONUS: How are these two texts making a similar argument about IA? (You’ll have to read carefully to answer this latter question.)
- Look at your list of social issues you began thinking about working on for Essay 2 a week or two ago. Choose one social issue and find (don’t read…yet) TWO ARTICLES on this social issue—one scholarly article and one non-scholarly article—using two different resources linked in Essay 2 Research Resources. Share links and publication info (Author name, title, etc.) for these two articles under #2 in your response.
- Briefly paraphrase in your own words the thesis of either:
—Jerry Salz, on the selfie, p.1, 2, 3 (bottom), 6,
Explain how K-Hole tells us what Normcore is by telling us what Normcore DOES; OR
Explain how Salz tells us what a selfie IS by telling us what a selfie DOES (ie what does a selfie SHOW us; how is it MADE? how does it IMPACT us?).
NEXT WEEK WE ARE ON BREAK: USE THIS TIME TO REVISE ESSAY 1 & DRAFT ESSAY 2. Your revised Essay 1 and your draft of Essay 2 are both due the following week (10/21).
