The Next Adventure

The second unit in the course is about Being Present in and Age of Distraction and it focuses on our relationship with technology and specifically social media. We begin with an analysis of our own phone use and then examine the affects of smartphones on our culture at large.

This week we will begin some non-fiction reading and a one-paragraph article review on the article “Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation.” (attached below)

Our literary text involves a show that examines what our world would be like if social media popularity was used as currency and the anxiety created by the supposed “digital age.” We will try our hand at some poetic creative writing as our main project for the week.
