Argument Paper

Iíve been thinking about the topic that I want to write my argument paper on, excluding all of the topics we arenít allowed to use. I am thinking about writing about standardized exams. My argument would be, ďDo colleges put too much stock in standardized test scores?Ē Some would argue that exams like the SAT are a good way to weed out individuals that normally wouldnít get into a good college. Iím the kind of student that knows my information, but stresses out over exams. Iím not a good test taker, and I donít feel like one exam should predict what someoneís options are in the future. I think that GPA and other aspects should be looked at more heavily. Another topic that I am thinking about writing my argument paper on is how dependent we are on technology. Although technology only makes things easier for us, I feel that today we are way too dependent on it. Majority of people wouldnít be able to find their way around without their navigation on their smart phones. Iím guilty of it. I feel that things have even dramatically changed since I was a kid. Every commercial I see advertising new toys for the upcoming Christmas season has some kind of technology in it. I saw a commercial for a Barbie doll that has a camera and screen in it. The seven year olds I camp counseled at the YMCA this summer brought I-pads to soccer camp with them. Instead of playing with each other in their free time, they chose to take out their play station portable games and sit alone. I think that although we may not all have control over how fast technology changes, we do have control over how much our children or we use it. At this rate, I feel that people will only get more and more dependent on technology as time goes on. Technology is only going to improve, but I hate seeing people become too dependent on it. I feel like if all technology was shut down for a day, people would go into a panic.
