Synthesis Assignment Guide
Description
A Synthesis Essay examines articles with a similar topic critically, states a personal
claim, supports that claim, refutes potential points made by the opposition side, and
effectively persuades others. For this assignment you will evaluate writings related
to social media and journalism. The essay will begin with an introductory
paragraph which introduces the overall topic and ends with a thesis statement. In
the body of the essay there will be two summary paragraphs, one for each article,
followed by an analysis of the connections (similarities and differences) between
them. Your own opinion in regards to the topic should be stated and supported, and
possible points of contention refuted. A conclusion paragraph will review the main
points from the body of the essay before restating your opinion or proposed
solution.
The synthesis essay can be based off of three articles, choose two out of the three
articles to compose your essay:
1. Skim Reading Is the New Normal by Maryanne Wolf, pp. 246-249.
2. Do We Read Differently on Paper Than on a Screen, pp. 249-253.
