PLN 22

In the article “Put forth our best writing selves,” by Douglas Hesse he talks about the possibilities of texting and using Twitter and how it could either be the death of writing or make it better. This matters because for the future generations of America writing may either be almost completely ruled out of school or one of the most important subjects. If Twitter and texting improve writing then it could mean better writing in schools. It also could mean better writing for younger kids because they would enjoy writing on the computer, blogging, and texting. So it could help future generations get into writing easier then pencil and pepper. The article “Put forth our best writing selves,” by Douglas Hesse matters because it is important that writing is still a big part of education in the future.

  1. Personally, I think that Twitter, Facebook, and texting are hurting society's writing. We don't have to worry about grammar and spelling in these instances, but when we go to write a paper, we're out of practice. What do you think? Do you think Facebook and texting are a positive or negative influence to society?
