Question Description

This is what my teacher wants....

It is about an article I will provide it to you. The link of the article is at the bottom of the page

In this mini-essay, which should be 300 words in length and MLA formatted (going over is fine, but really, aim for 300-320 words), please investigate certain key questions in relation to Twenge’s text.

Your mini-essay should disregard some of the conventional rules of essay writing. For instance, there really isn’t time to provide a standard Introduction. Also, the typical summary-type Conclusion doesn’t have a place in this essay.)


First, take a sentence or two to briefly introduce the author, her credentials, and her text. From there, address what appears to be the circumstances or conditions (in other words, the exigence) that prompted Twenge to produce this article.

Next, identify key assumptions Twenge makes about her target audience. Specifically, what does Twenge assume that her audience has to believe/value/care about in order to continue reading past the title and first paragraph? Also, what does she assume her audience knows about the topic she addresses?

Use textual evidence from Twenge’s article—in the form of direct quotations and/or paraphrased information—to strengthen your analysis, and use appropriate citations with this textual evidence.
