TV Bad! TV Good? Orwell, Huxley, Postman Oh My!!!

Brain rotting in 3...2...1
Anyway. About the paper...

Write to prompt 3 on page 787 of your book. Keep it to 1000 words +/- 10%. You need to use at least 3 sources from the conversation section (p. 766-787) and at least 2 outside sources. Those can be ones we've read or seen in class, or ones you find on your own.

Remember that a synthesis paper is essentially a research paper in that you are using sources. Those sources need to be cited. So, remember to look over the research paper resources for how to do that. Also, is your friend and he loves to help out with works cited pages.

It is due on Monday May 12. I don't normally give so much time on this one, but given the timing of various things, this is how it's working out this year.
