The Effect of Social Media on College Students’ Mental Health
Argue your side of social media’s effect on the mental health of college students. Does a social medium cause depression, loneliness, anxiety? Do social media disrupt peace and happiness of college students? Use at least one of Aristotle’s appeals for persuasion. Your job is to convince your audience/reader, UIC college students. Be sure that the focus is your argument for this genre. Your opinion reigns supreme, then use the opinion of published folks as evidence that someone agrees with you. Do not confuse this with a research paper where your opinion is rarely mentioned.
Paragraph 1 ñ Introduction
Give background such as definitions for terms you will use in the paper including, but not limited to: social media (Which sites? What makes media social?); college students (global, American, Chicagoan?); peace/happiness (Describe this state.); (depression/anxiety/loneliness, choose one or two or all and describe).
End the paragraph with a clear thesis statement that shows the side you chose to argue and the reasons that your argument is correct. You will use these reasons to foreshadow the body paragraphs.
