Is technology beneficial or detrimental to humanity?
1. First, narrow the subject of technology to a more manageable topic like
communications, health care, space, transportation, etc. Choose an area that
interests you.
2. Then, you will have to decide your position on the question. Use your experiences to
illustrate your reasons for your position. You may also use any of the Stephen King
stories to illustrate or support your reasons for your position.
3. As part of the position paper, you will also need to include a brief summary of
opposing views with refutation section which usually falls at the end of the paper
right before the conclusion.
Organization:
Introduction: identify your topic area and state your position on the issue with your
reasons 2 or 3 reasons works best
Each body paragraph should have a topic sentence stating one of your reasons and
include support for that reason including examples
Summary of Opposing views:
1. Briefly give the reasons that others have for disagreeing with you and show
why your position is the more reasonable.
2. You might acknowledge that the opposing view has some merit but is flawed
for some reason. For example, your position might be that technological
advances in healthcare are beneficial. The opposing view would include not
only are some advances not good, some are downright life-threatening. You
could agree that some new advances seem good at the beginning, but the
benefits outweigh the disadvantages or dangers. X-ray is an example of this
its beneficial in small doses, but lethal in large.
3. This section doesnt have to be long. It is supposed to show that you have
thought about other positions but have discarded them in favor of your own.
Conclusion sum up without repeating your thesis; or, leave your reader with
something to think about; or, have a call to action something for your readers to do
