All the answers put together for questions 1-6 must come out to at least 300 words.

Based on Gladwell’s “Small Change,” answer the questions below:

1. What are the different sections of the text? How does the author divide his argument?

2. What is the author doing in each section?

3. Where in the text does the author introduce the topic or argument?

4 Where in the text does the author provide examples?

5. Why type of examples does the writer provide? (i.e. personal experience, statistical data, published material, interviews, etc.)

6. What is the author’s purpose in writing the article?

7. In his essay, Gladwell tells us about two concepts, strong ties and weak ties, and he contrasts them. What are strong ties and weak ties, and how do they differ? Use one of Gladwell’s examples to explain this distinction in your own words.

8. Pay attention to the ways Gladwell’s use of those terms (strong/weak ties) helps him build his own analysis of the relationship between social media and revolution. This application of ideas or concepts approach is an important analytic technique. In what ways did you do something similar with “digital natives” and “digital immigrants” as you used Prensky’s concepts to critically examine the MLTI and Johnson?

9. Gladwell writes, “High-risk activism, McAdam concluded, is a ‘strong-tie’ phenomenon” (81). What does this mean? How does Gladwell use this idea of a “‘strong-tie’ phenomenon” to explain “why the revolution will not be tweeted”?

10. Gladwell claims that networks are very different from hierarchies. Why does Gladwell think this difference matters when it comes to social media and social change? What do you think about the difference?
