Each essay should address all elements of the essay question. It should also have some structure (each element of the question organized into its own paragraph at a minimum). If the essay is simply one paragraph or a list of ideas then it will automatically receive a 10 point deduction. Videos are provided for each study guide that provide some context for the test theme and break down each element of the test questions.
Relate the essay topics to the course resources. Do not ignore relevant articles. (FYI: Some articles relate to more than one theme. All articles are fair game for each test.) There will be at least a 20 point penalty if specifics from the course resources are not used. Make sure the source of this information is clear. I do not expect formal citations in test essays, but informal credit (acknowledging either the article title or author) for information used still needs to be provided. A simple “according to ___…” before the information used would be fine. If citation is missing, then the standard 20 point deduction applies.
Also, relate the topics to your own specific life experiences and observations. These questions hopefully will help students see the relevance of these topics to their own life. Since personal experience is as important as the course resources, there will also be a 20 point penalty if specific personal experiences and/or observations are not included. Make sure personal experiences are clear. The use of “I” is encouraged to signify events that you have personally experienced or witnessed. Keep in mind that these should not be general experiences. Discuss specific events when relating your own personal experiences to the questions. For example, when discussing personal experience, don’t do this:
Lots of people dislike all of the constant updates made to iPhones. (Too general – no specific life experiences mentioned)
I really like all of the constant updates to iphones. (Still too general. The statement is not grounded in actual experiences.)
and instead do this:
Two years ago I updated to the iPhone 7 and was really upset that Apple got rid of the headphone jack. They provided an adapter for wired headphones, but that got in the way of charging my phone. Then there were also several issues with the AirPods. One time….
If personal experiences about yourself are too sensitive, then rely of specific personal experiences observing others. When in doubt, ask me questions.
There’s going to be three essay style questions you need to pick two of them and using the articles provided as background knowledge answer each part of the question and it’s on section in your own words using your own experiences with the questions.
Define “work.” In Why Things Bite Back, Edward Tenner stated, “Technology demands more, not less, human work to function.” Think about your own life and provide multiple specific examples that demonstrate how technology makes your life easier and multiple specific examples that demonstrate how it makes your life more difficult. Then use these examples and the course resources to determine whether we work more or less in an automated world (do not take the middle of the road here).
Think about your current job or the job you wish to have after graduation. What are or will be your primary responsibilities? What impact will automation (including AI) and globalization have on this job? In general, what careers will be impacted the most? The least? Support your answers and incorporate specifics from the course resources and your own life.
In “It’s a Flat World, After All” Thomas L. Friedman explains that the world is flat. What does this mean? What allowed for Friedman’s flattening? What events since Friedman published his essay (2005) have led to additional flattening or have taken Friedman’s vision in a different direction? Provide several specific examples from both the course resources and your own personal experiences. Be diverse with your examples. Consider social/cultural, political and economic themes.
