Readings: Sherry Turkle’s “The Flight from Conversation”

Jean Twenge’s “Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation?”

Your rough drafts and final essays should always be typed and double-spaced in MLA style with one-inch margins, a 12-point Times New Roman font, with your last name and page numbers in the upper right-hand corner. ** Late rough or final drafts will receive a grade reduction. Do not skip lines between paragraphs.

Sherry Turkle, in “The Flight from Conversation” is concerned that technology is causing many of us to lose human connection. Jean Twenge in “Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation?” worries about “compelling evidence that the devices we’ve placed in young people’s hands are having profound effects on their lives—and making them seriously unhappy” (4). Considering the ideas in the two texts, answer the following: What role does technology play in influencing the ability to mature and form deep relationships with others? (In other words, how does the use of technology change how we interact with others, and impact how we reach adulthood?)

I will evaluate your paper by looking at:

  1. Your thesis (project): You should express and support your own ideas about the assigned topic and use textual evidence from the readings to help develop and support your claim.
  2. Your use of textual evidence and protocols: Choose relevant quotations and examples to further your project.
  3. Your organization: Paragraphs should focus on one idea, build upon each other logically, and work toward the development of the total project. Each body paragraph should have two quotations, one from each writer.
  4. Your sentence clarity and correctness: Proofread your essay for spelling and grammatical errors.
