Autumn of the Multitaskers

Make sure to look at the previous two blog posts as well.

Take another look at (and finish) the multitasking article and identify the overall claim/assertion (the glossary of The Language of Composition has a good definition if you need one). Then, identify the claim/assertion in each section of the article (handily, sections are indicated by a drop cap). Blog your results for Monday.

By the way, here's a good NPR story on this subject. You can read it or listen to it here. Aside form looking at assertions, this topic goes well with our metacognition papers as we continue to learn how to use our brains most effectively.

Side note: Here is a really graphic blog on texting while driving that I found while looking for a picture of someone running off a road in Wyoming. ONLY for those with strong stomachs. It is the result of an accident. Seriously only for those with strong stomachs. If you have a hard time getting horrible images out of your mind, DO NOT LOOK!

Oh, and I thought all of these cartoons were funny and I couldn't decide which one to use.

We will be in the Library Lab to get started on our papers on Monday. Career Cruising will be Tuesday and Wednesday in the Library Lab. It looks like we might live there some next week.
