COM 105 Oakton Community College Interpersonal Communications Discussion

Description

This week you will begin hands-on work on your final paper. You will be writing an outline.
As you know, your smartphone paper is a combination informational/persuasive paper. Your paper concerns the topic of smartphone use by society as whole. It will consider multiple age groups, professions, and purposes. This is an opportunity for you to do a deep dive into the controversial subject of smart device dependence, which is essential to examine given the smartphone’s ubiquity and global influence.
Important note: This is not a paper about generic cellphones. It is specifically on smartphones, which, of course, are cellphones connected to the internet.
PAPER: Your final paper will consist of four short “chapters,” which are as follows:
Chapter 1: Describe smartphone use, including purposes smartphones serve. Include at least 2 credible sources. (The expected length will be no less than two double-spaced pages.)
Chapter 2: Discuss the problems with smartphone use. Include research to support your claims. Include at least 2 credible sources. (The expected length will be no less than two double-spaced pages.)

Chapter 3: Discuss the benefits of smartphone use. Include research to support your claims. Include at least 2 credible sources. (The expected length will be no less than two double-spaced pages.)
Chapter 4: Describe your recommendations on how to diminish the problems and maximize on the benefits. Include at least 2 credible sources. (The expected length will be no less than two double-spaced pages.)
Your Outline Instructions:
Start brainstorming the different facts and arguments that you will be including in each of the four chapters. Your outline may be bullet points or formulated sentences and paragraphs.

If you use bullet points, your points must be specific. For example, a bullet point that says something like “smartphones cause addition” is too vague to count toward an efficient outline. You will not get points for generic statements that do not demonstrate effort of some research. Get specific, informational points in your bullets. For example, a bullet point that says something like “According to the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), children between the ages of 12 and 18 are X% more likely to become dependent on smartphones than adults.” Another example, instead of writing a bullet that says something like “Smartphones provide immediate internet accessibility that help people in emergencies,” you can be more specific by writing something like “According to the National Association of emergency medical technicians (NAEMT) more than X% of 911 calls were made on smartphones.”
