IP Organization

So I kind of took bits and pieces of all three different groups's how I organized my essay:
1) Intro: I basically catch the reader's attention and make them subconsciously know that technological communication is destroying our society's social skills.
2) Statement and discussion of topic: Here is where I really introduce my issue and begin to develop my argument and clearly state my opinion about the subject.
3) Statement of facts: Now I throw some facts at the reader. I found many studies and experiments showing the results of too much electronic social communication. They can't argue with the facts!
4) Procatalepsis: Here is where I acknowledge other arguments and give them credit, then throw it back in their face with more facts and evidence showing why they are wrong and I'm right.
5) Conclusion: Here is where I finish up by telling them to stop being stupid (not really, but you know what I mean) and to act and inhibit change. Then I finish strong, leaving them no room to argue back because I'm right and they'll know that they were wrong.

The end.


  1. I love the confidence you have by saying that by the reader confronts the conclusion, there is no question what you suggest is correct- there are no other possibilities or options in their mind. If you successfully attain that state of persuasion in your audience, you have definitely succeeded. One of my most favorite quotes may have a silly origin as Yoda, yet what he says is absolutely true. “Do or do not, there is no try.”

  2. "Stop being stupid"-unfortunately I've learned that this is the hardest part of the paper. If I could just write "stop being stupid" it wouldn't be so hard. But apparently I need to be tactful and persuasive... blah blah blah. Good Luck!
