Argumentative Essay: Social Media

Learning Standards

Many people use social networks -- including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter -- on a daily basis, but not everyone thinks that using them is a good idea. Some people think that social media is distracting, while others think that social networks connect users to new people and ideas.

Write an argumentative essay to one of the following assigned audiences:

  • letter to the editor

  • letter to the school principal (or school board)

  • letter to parents (PTA)

  • letter to classmates (in school newspaper)

  • letter to opponents (those who strongly disagree with you stance)

In your piece, state your opinion on the benefits or drawbacks of social networks – choose a clear side of the argument. Convince your audience to agree with your position.
