Chapter 5/ Teens, Kindness, and Rhetoric of America as the Greatest Country in the World (or use to be?)
TKRAGCIW: This short article located on pg (374) of our book explores a number of statistics surrounding teens and their social interactions online. These student's reported in article are middle school and they are asked about their peers online. A number of the students claimed that their peers were unkind to one another. It can also be said that the claims were mostly made by black girls. From the articles facts it can be said that middle school students use social media sites a safe place for unfiltered speech, contrary to their beliefs, their language and social interactions cause drama and serious issues in school. Fights are usually the case for most of these social interactions. I found it less surprising to see that adults have more favorable social interactions, as they are a little more mature and think rather rationally.
Chapter 5: This section of the book helps students get a better understanding of the sources they chose when writing English papers. The chapter goes into detail about evaluating online and printed sources. Although in times like today, its easier to type in a topic into any search engine, the books gives a great deal of advice on how look at other sources like the encyclopedia and printed news articles.
