Do you need time to discuss non-library matters with your class on the day of

If yes please specify:
Assignment description and sample topics:
Purpose: In 5-6 pages (1200-1450 words), you will need to share an
Informational or Directional Process within the topic of Life Online to
inform your audience so that the reader can understand the reasons for the
process, how it something is made, works, or is done.

So far you relied solely upon your knowledge of a topic. Now you will need
to find further information. Doing research may suggest steps or sequences
you have neglected. While this essay is not a formal research paper,
researching will save pondering time and improve the quality of your writing
by using the Internet or with a trip or two to your library. Relevant
Websites as well as feature articles in such publications as The New York
Times, Wired and Newsweek, can be useful resources. You are required to cite
one-two outside, credible sources for this paper.

The Informational process analysis informs a reader who desires a better
understanding of how a procedure works, or so that the reader can better
appreciate the process.

The Directional process analysis describes how to do a process, step by step,
in order for the reader to complete such a process on his or her own.
The type of process analysis you choose will determine the writer’s role
(point of view) and the essay’s organization.

Select a process you know well or that interests you within the topic of Life
Online. For example, you may want to write How relationships work online,
How companies monitor users on the web, How Facebook has redefined
“friend,” How the Internet began, How e-mail works, How children acquire
Internet language, How living online affects one’s health, How companies
use mobile devices to invade user’s privacy and what steps can be taken to
prevent them from doing so, How collaborative art happens online, How the
Internet is changing our culture, How to protect your privacy, How to become
an Internet troll, How to spot a troll, How an Internet meme becomes a meme,
etc.

Writer's Role: If you are writing an Informational process analysis, you may
write in First/Third point of view, but not Second person. If you are
writing a Directional process analysis, you will mostly likely write in
Second person, but also can write in First/Third point of view.
Your Audience: peers in an academic setting who may not appreciate the
importance of the process or understand the process. Assess your audience
carefully and ask your self why your reader might be interested in the
process, if there are terms you need to define, or steps you need to explain
thoroughly.
