In the reading provided for this final essay, nine different people provide their points of view on this topic.

Essay Topic:
Basing your discussion on the ideas of the writers in the reading, “The Internet: Is It Changing the Way We Think?”, what concerns are people expressing about the Internet and Google? Are these valid concerns? Why or why not?
Explain your point of view on this topic in an essay of 1200 words minimum.
You may only use the following sources for this essay:
Sherry Turkle “Connectivity and Its Discontents”
Nicholas Carr “Is Google Making Us Stupid?”
John Naughton “The Internet: Is It Changing the Way We Think?”

Instructions

Discuss this question in an essay of 1200 words. This word count does not include your name, etc. on the first page, nor the Works Cited page. It only includes the content of your essay.

Type your essay in MLA format. Review this in Module 1.

Provide 4 in-text citations of information from only the readings and videos provided in this module [no other sources allowed] in MLA format. This is explained in Module 5.

List your citations in MLA8 format on the last page of your essay in Works Cited.

The title Works Cited is centered and typed just like that. No quotation marks, no underlining, no bold.

Essay must be in MLA format. If it is not MLA format, it will not be read and will receive a score of 0.

Citation Formatting
Part of what this final exam is testing is your ability not only to discuss the topic but also to format in-text citations and Works Cited [citations] correctly. You must be resourceful and figure these out using the resources provided in this course, The Everyday Writer, and information provided in previous essay assignments.
Your instructor will not provide you with the formatting.
This is the last task for this semester. The semester ends June 3rd.
Due Date
I can not accept anything posted after that date because it is the end of the semester, and I have to submit final grades for people enrolling in summer session.
Also, I will not read any essays sent as attachments or attached in the assignment comment section.
Make sure you have extra time to submit your essay before the deadline because Canvas could bump you out of the line if you wait until 11:30 pm or later to submit.
If your Internet service provider is unreliable, use the labs at school or a public library which have more reliable ISPs. This is a commonly used excuse which I can’t verify, so don’t ask me to reopen the portal because you missed the deadline. I can’t do this.
There are no exceptions.
