The widespread accessibility of modern technology has given us many new possibilities. We’re now able to obtain information more quickly and easily than ever before. We can keep in touch family and friends online and make friends with people we may never meet. We’re able to program destinations into navigation systems and follow spoken directions without ever consulting a map. However, many believe that this constant access to different kinds of technology makes us more distracted, less able to communicate meaningfully with each other, and generally less capable.

Research 1. Your research is integral to your argument essay; however, it plays only a supporting role. At this point, only after you have gathered content in the prewriting process, should you begin the research process, because a. Your use of secondary sources should be limited. b. Secondary sources provide evidence to support your claims. c. You shouldn’t allow secondary sources to take over your argument. 2. Use your prewriting to guide your research. Look for evidence that will help to confirm what you know, clarify your point of view, or correct your mistaken beliefs.
