Taking a position is one of the basic components of virtually every argument. For this essay, you are required to take your own position on the issue that Nicholas Carr explores in “Is Google Making Us Stupid?”: the impacts of new digital technology on human intelligence, concentration, and memory. Your essay should develop a clear perspective on this issue, and you should include a description of whether or not you agree with Carr’s perspective, and why or why not.

Your essays need to cite Carr’s argument in depth to provide support, detail, and context to your own position.
