Objective: In a well-organized, thesis-driven essay of 4-5 pages, you will be discussing the future of dating, relationships, or friendship.
Option 1: Explain what the dating landscape will look like twenty years from now. (2038) Approach the paper from a technological slant. How will technology shape the way people interact “on the dating scene?” Will it change things drastically? Will people cling to tradition? You will need to use at least 2 articles to help support your argument.
Option 2: Focus on friendship. Explore how technology will shape the way people interact with friends twenty years from now. What will some of the pros and cons be in regards to being more efficient at finding people who might be great matches with your personality? Will technological devices that evolve from smartphones or Google Glass do more harm than good? Will people become friends with their devices? You will need to use at least 2 articles to help support your argument.
Please use the articles/videos/lectures discussed in class to help strengthen your argument. A Works Cited page is required. Please use the MLA format when you are citing points and quotations. Plagiarism of any kind will result in immediate failure (see syllabus). (Times New Roman 12 point font) (1000 words minimum-this does not include the works cited page)
