INTRO TO MEDIA SOCIETY

In this course we are covering several different potential impacts of media consumption. For this paper, you need to choose an effect we’ve addressed (or will address) in class and propose a solution to help mitigate a harmful effect or enhance a positive effect.

As you write your paper, here are specific questions to answer:

Describe the effect you are targeting. Provide information about what is known about this effect (what type of content causes it, what type of person is most affected, etc.), drawing on course material for your answer.
Propose a practical solution for this media effect. Provide detailed information about what your solution involves.
Discuss why we would have reason to believe that the solution you are proposing would work. Focus on process here. That is, why and how does this effect happen? What part of the process is your solution designed to address? Again, use material from the course to support your answer.
All parts of the assignment must be typed. The essays combined should not exceed 2 total pages of double spaced text (not counting references). Use one-inch margins, a regular font style (e.g., Times New Roman), and size. Assignments must be submitted to Canvas.
