Your Assignment

All of the readings in The Little, Brown Reader either comment directly on or relate to aspects of our culture that pose challenges in our effort to understand our lives and environment. These include: family, identity, teaching and learning, work and play, language and communication, social networking, law and disorder, consumerism, and our environment.

Choose an issue from our reader you can build an argument around, and write a research paper in which you argue why it’s important to examine this issue and what can be done to solve it. Citing from one of the readings from our text and including three to five additional sources from SBCC Library databases, synthesize the viewpoints of these sources, and argue the position you find most convincing. Be sure to adhere to MLA guidelines throughout the process.
