4 Steps

  2. Brainstorm ideas (both sides)
  3. Decide the type of response to give
  4. Write the thesis (written as a direct response to essay question)

The government should be permitted to censor the internet to help protect young people from offensive content. Do you agree or disagree? Form an opinion.

1. Diffenrent words - Should the government be able to block certain content that it deems inappropriate?

2. Brainstorm

Support

  • Tremendous amount of adult content on the internet that is widely available to children

Refute

  • Censoring the internet restricts an individual's freedom of speech
  • May lead to a slower transfer of information, i.e. blocking certain news sites would mean internet users would not have as many outlets to receive news
  • What is offensive to one person may not be to another

3. Type of response - Refute

4. Thesis - it is not agreed that the government should be permitted to censor the internet, even in the pursuit of protecting young people from offensive content.

Technology has made people even more anti-social. Do you agree?

1. Other words - Because of all forms of technology people have stopped communicating with others

2. Brainstorm

Support

  • the internet, video games, tv watching, etc encourages people to spend their time in isolation, interacting with a machine

Refute

  • A lot of technology actually encourages people to interact with others, i.e. mobile phones, networking websites
  • People are not more anti-social, they are just communicating in different ways, i.e. instead of meeting face to face in the office, instant massaging can be used.

3. Type of response - Refute

4. Thesis – It is refuted that technology has made people even more anti-social.
