Please refer to the syllabus for the specific due date

Assignment Topic:

Follow the directions for the Writing Project, “A Synthesis Essay,” described on p.310 of A&B.

Post your technology topic to VSpace as soon as you can. Only one student per topic, first come, first served.

Assignment Overview:

We're exploring the effects of technology on a particular group of people. You may select the technology (be specific) and the group of people. Use the following as your synthesis question:

How has/have [technology] affected [group of people]?

Your essay should be broken into two main sections: In the first section, you are describing how the technology works. As part of this section, you must include a diagram of some sort. The diagram may show a process, it may show how parts fit together, or it may show a flow-chart of choices. How can you visually represent some of the complex data that you're describing?

The second section should be the synthesis of the effects or the possible effects. How has this technology changed things for a particular group of people, or what kinds of changes might we expect based on the new technological developments?

You may use first person for this essay.
