Respond to the prompt using evidence. Where you stand on the topic and why? c. Use required evidence to support your ideas. “Helpful Hints” about writing a reaction paper: APA FORMAT ADVICE: These are the most common mistakes. Avoid them to receive full credit. 1) Use this link: I cannot express this enough. You will notice that NONE of your sources are cited, therefore it’s critical you review this link to know how to cite a film, youtube videos, and the text. This link provides multiple sources for you to review and tells you EXACTLY HOW to cite this material IN the paper and on your last “References” page. 2) Do not use contractions (e.g. “don’t” should be “do not”) 3) Double-check your formatting. Did you cite everything properly IN the paper? If you make a fact-like statement, you MUST cite it. Example: “Children develop Theory of Mind around age 4 and some develop it a little later.”….WHAT?! REALLY?! HOW do YOU know that? Where did you hear that? Where did you read that? CITE IT. 4) Make sure every sentence has meaning and purpose. 5) Can each of your sentences stand-alone and still make your stance on the topic strong? If they can’t, re-write the sentence. For example don’t write, “Theory of mind is important. Emotional development is interesting.” SO WHAT?! Who cares?! Sentences like these are throwaway sentences and do not tell me anything about WHY or HOW. Explain it to me, and use examples from your resources! 6) Make each statement tells the reader SOMETHING! You have only one page to write something that matters, so make it count! Do not just repeat yourself over and over. Ask yourself, “are my sentences just saying the exact same thing in a different way?”….if they do, it’s time to re-write them. 7) Re-read your paper after you write it. I cannot express to you all how important it is to edit your paper (MORE THAN ONCE!). Read it out loud or have another person read it over so you can make sure it is the best version it can be before you turn it in. ...

Should Teens Have Access to Social Media?
Student’s Name




Social media is one of the contemporary and emerging trends in the world of today across
all spheres of life. With its varied accompaniments, it has seen rising and falling if individuals
from one level to another depending on how individuals utilize it. To the teens, however
according to the recent information they are on the verge of making social media part and parcel
of their lifestyle. It is nevertheless determined that despite social media being associated with the
detrimental effects on the teens’ life, it is also beneficial in one way or the other. Like change is
inevitable, social media use by teens is hardly controllable. In this regard, teens should have
limited access to social media for their overall well-being.
I am obliged to recognize that at one point of an individual life, social media has been
once a very close friend if not addiction tool. There are many instances teens have been made by
the owners of social media themselves to believe that social sites are the sites to go for; they are
everything a teen can ever have. The authors of the two articles emphasize, rather focuses on ...
