Begin by reading Clive Thompson’s essay “Smarter Than You Think: How Technology is Changing Our Minds For the Better” on page 340 of your book. Then write a brief essay that analyzes the strength of his argument. Considering the discussions we have had on effective introductions, conclusions and paragraph development, discuss overall whether or not Thompson’s essay is effective and engaging. You should also begin to discuss the strength of his argument, based on the ideas of Logos, Pathos and Ethos that we discussed in class. It would also be a good idea to reference Nicholas Carr’s “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” and consider which of the two writers makes the most effective/convincing argument.
