Writing vs. Actual Writing
In the article Writing, Technology, and Teens, we look at how electronic communication effects a teens school work. With many survey's displaying wide ranges of data, we can basically conclude that most teens text and/or Instant Message. The main debate is whether this new age of communication is effecting the writing of teens today and ultimately going to bring down the basic structure of the English language. The article states that "60 % of teens do not think of these electronic texts as writing," I happen to agree with this percentage of youth and feel that an occasional mishaps in writing is no big deal and ultimately will have no affect on the structure of writing.
