Content:

Using at least one outside source, write a commentary on digital living. A commentary is an informational, evaluative, or persuasive piece intended for a magazine or newspaper audience. Therefore, your sources should be attributed (integrated into your essay) not cited in a parenthetical (as in a research paper). See the essay on page 591 of your textbook for an example of attributed sources). A commentary can provide a personal opinion or insight but must be formal in tone and supported by your source.

You may use the essays in your textbook as models and as your outside sources if you wish. (These include “Grief in the Age of Facebook,” “Is Facebook Making Us Sad?” and “Hyperconnected”). You may also use visuals we will be viewing in class. These can be streamed here:
