Purpose

The purpose of this essay is to take to take a position on an argument. You will choose a topic related to the impact of technology on ONE area, such as science, communications, education, health care, or freedom of speech. You must choose an arguable sub-topic related to one of these larger areas. For example, you can argue that specific types of technology, such as tools in health care that monitor a person’s health and well-being, are beneficial to society.

College-level argument essays require you to go beyond merely summarizing what you read on a topic. You must take a position and build an argument supported by credible and legitimate sources. You must analyze and comment on what the importance and significance of this topic is in the wider world.

Note: You cannot be neutral, and just list pros and cons. You must “take a side” and defend an argument. Even if you are unsure, you still have to decide on a position and defend it. That is the purpose of this assignment. It is an extremely important academic skill to learn. You will address the opposition (the cons) in the counter-arguments section of the essay.
