CRITICAL THINKING YOU WILL HAVE 3 MINUTES TODAY TO COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING EXERCISE. WRITE YOUR SENTENCE DOWN AND SHOW IT TO ME. NO TALKING NO CHEATING!! DECODE THE MESSAGE THE FOLLOWING COMBINATION OF LETTERS REPRESENTS A SENTENCE FROM WHICH ONE PARTICULAR VOWEL HAS BEEN REMOVED. IF YOU CAN FIGURE OUT WHAT THAT VOWEL IS AND REINSERT IT ELEVEN TIMES, IN ELEVEN DIFFERENT PLACES, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO DETERMINE WHAT THE SENTENCE IS SAYING. VRYFINXMP LARXCDSW HATWXPCT ANSWER EVERY FINE EXEMPLAR EXCEEDS WHAT WE EXPECT.

MOST PROBLEM-SOLVERS QUICKLY REALIZE THE MISSING LETTER IS E, PROBABLY BECAUSE THE WORD VERY SEEMS TO JUMP OUT AT THEM. THEY WORK VERY HARD TO CONSTRUCT THE SENTENCE WITH VERY AS ITS FIRST WORD. VERY IS NOT THE FIRST WORD, HOWEVER; EVERY IS. DONT ALLOW CONVICTION AND DETERMINATION THAT YOU ARE RIGHT PREVENT YOU FROM EXPLORING OTHER CREATIVE OPTIONS. TODAYS GOALS I CAN ANALYZE THE EFFECT DETAILS HAVE ON A SENTENCE. I CAN ANALYZE HOW AN AUTHOR

STRUCTURES HIS/HER ARGUMENT. I CAN BEGIN TO DEVELOP CLEAR CLAIMS. QUICK VOCABULARY QUIZ 1. OPEN TO SOCRATIVE 2. LOGIN TO BAUER2016 3. TYPE YOUR FIRST NAME AND LAST NAME 4. YOU HAVE EXACTLY 5 MINUTES TO COMPLETE THE QUIZ. TODAYS GOALS I CAN ANALYZE THE EFFECT DETAILS HAVE ON A SENTENCE.

VOICE LESSONS DETAIL CONSIDER: AN OLD MAN, DON TOMASITO, THE BAKER, PLAYED THE TUBA. WHEN HE BLEW INTO THE HUGE MOUTHPIECE, HIS FACE WOULD TURN PURPLE AND HIS THOUSAND WRINKLES WOULD DISAPPEAR AS HIS SKIN FILLED OUT. - ALBERTO ALVARO RIOS, THE IGUANA KILLER DISCUSS: 1. THE FIRST SENTENCE IS A GENERAL STATEMENT. HOW DOES THE SECOND SENTENCE ENRICH AND INTENSIFY THE FIRST? 2. CONTRAST THE SECOND SENTENCE WITH THE FOLLOWING: WHEN HE BLEW THE TUBA, HIS FACE TURNED PURPLE AND HIS CHEEKS PUFFED OUT. WHICH SENTENCE MORE EFFECTIVELY EXPRESSED AN ATTITUDE TOWARD TOMASITO? WHAT IS THAT ATTITUDE AND HOW IS IT COMMUNICATED?

APPLY: DESCRIBE SOMEONE JUMPING OVER A PUDDLE. YOUR FIRST SENTENCE SHOULD BE GENERAL, STATING THE ACTION SIMPLY. YOUR SECOND SENTENCE SHOULD CLARIFY AND INTENSIFY THE ACTION THROUGH DETAIL. SHARE YOUR SENTENCE WITH A PARTNER. TODAYS GOALS I CAN ANALYZE HOW AN AUTHOR STRUCTURES THEIR ARGUMENT. I CAN BEGIN TO DEVELOP CLEAR CLAIMS. 1-2

9-12 3-8 13 ORGANIZING LONG OR DIFFICULT TEXTS QUICK BREAKDOWN OF THE CONVERSATION CHAPTER 1 SAYS: REMEMBER HAL FROM 2001 SPACE ODYSSEY? I FEEL MORE AND MORE LIKE HIM EVERYDAY. THE WAY I THINK SEEMS TO BE CHANGING. IM SCATTERED AND UNFOCUSED. I TALK TO MY FRIENDS AND THEY ALL FEEL IT TOO. IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THE INTERNET COULD BE CAUSING IT? I READ

ABOUT A STUDY WHERE 6,000 YOUNG STUDENTS NO LONGER READ IN A LINEAR FASHION FROM LEFT TO RIGHT, BUT SCAN THE ENTIRE PAGE. I WONDER IF THIS IS WHATS HAPPENING TO US ALL? WONDER: WHY DOES HE INTRODUCES HIS BOOK WITH SEVERAL STORIES? WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS CHAPTER (WHAT IS IT DOING)? DOES: INTRODUCES THE CONVERSATION THAT CARR IS PLANS TO HAVE. IS THE INTERNET NEGATIVELY IMPACTING MY BRAIN? IF SO, HOW? TODAYS GOALS I CAN ANALYZE HOW AN AUTHOR STRUCTURES HIS/HER ARGUMENT.

I CAN BEGIN TO DEVELOP CLEAR CLAIMS. CHAPTER 2 SAYS: SCIENTISTS AND DOCTORS ALWAYS BELIEVED THAT THE BRAIN BECAME UNCHANGEABLE AROUND AGE 20. BUT, NIETZSCHE NOTICED A CHANGE IN HIS WRITING STYLE WHEN HE BEGAN WRITING ON A TYPEWRITER WHICH LED HIM TO BELIEVE THAT MAYBE HIS BRAIN COULD BE RESTRUCTURED LATE IN LIFE. AFTER THAT, MERZENICH BEGAN STUDYING BRAIN PLASTICITY, KANDEL CONDUCTED RESEARCH ON SEA SLUGS AND REGENERATION OF CELLS, AND OTHER STUDIED HOW STROKE PATIENTS RELEARNED HOW TO WALK AND SPEAK. ALL OF THIS LED TO THE UNDERSTANDING THAT OUR BRAINS CAN BE RESTRUCTURED. WONDER: WHY DOES HE INCLUDE STORIES ABOUT WHAT VARIOUS PEOPLE IN THE PAST HAVE BELIEVED ABOUT THE BRAIN? WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS

CHAPTER (WHAT IS IT DOING)? DOES: HE ENTERS THE CONVERSATION BY SAYING THAT ALTHOUGH PEOPLE USED TO BELIEVE THE BRAIN COULDNT BE RESTRUCTURED, WE NOW KNOW THAT THEY CAN BE. THIS IS ULTIMATELY ALLOWS CARR TO ASK A SECOND QUESTION: COULD MY BRAIN BE CHANGING BECAUSE OF THE INTERNET? CHAPTER 3 SAYS: TOOLS SUCH AS THE CLOCK AND THE MAP HAD A MASSIVE IMPACT ON THE WAY WE THINK. THE BRAIN IS STRUCTURED IN FOUR DIFFERENT WAYS, BUT COGNITIVE SUPPORT IS THE PART OF THE BRAIN THAT IS AFFECTED BY THE TOOLS WE USE. COGNITIVE SUPPORT ALSO JUST HAPPENS TO BE THE PART OF THE BRAIN THAT IS MOST LIKELY TO CHANGE. SOCRATES AND PLATO NOTED MANY, MANY YEARS AGO THAT WE SHOULD ALWAYS BE CAREFUL THAT WE CONSIDER NEW TECHNOLOGY BECAUSE IT COULD CHANGE US.

WONDER: WHY DOES HE DISCUSS THE CLOCK AND THE MAP IN THIS CHAPTER? WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS CHAPTER (WHAT IS IT DOING)? DOES: CARR IS SUPPORTING HIS HUNCH THAT THE INTERNET (A TOOL) IS CAPABLE OF CHANGING THE BRAIN. HE FURTHER SUPPORTS THIS HUNCH BY GIVING TWO EXAMPLES OF TOOLS THAT HAVE RESHAPED THE WAY WE THINK. CHAPTER 4 SAYS: THERE HAS BEEN A CLEAR PROGRESSION OF HOW THE HUMAN BRAIN SHIFTED OVER THE YEARS. BY FAR THE BIGGEST IMPACT ON THINKING CAME AS WE BEGAN TO WRITE THINGS DOWN. THIS PROGRESSION WAS SLOW, BUT AS BOOKS BECAME READILY AVAILABLE TO THE MASSES, PEOPLE BEGAN TO READ SILENTLY FOR SUSTAINED PERIODS OF TIME. WE NOW KNOW THAT SILENT SUSTAINED READING

LEADS TO DEEP THINKING. WONDER: WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS CHAPTER? DOES: THIS PROVIDES EVIDENCE OF HOW DEEP THINKING OCCURS. AND IT ALLOWS HIM TO PONDER WHETHER TECHNOLOGY MAY PUSH ASIDE THE BENEFITS OF DEEP THINKING. CHAPTER 5 SAYS: NOW THERE IS NEW TOOL A MACHINE THAT CAN DO WHAT MANY TOOLS DO. IT IS INCREDIBLY INTERACTIVE AND DEMANDS OUR ATTENTION. IT IS HAVING THREE MAJOR IMPACTS ON SOCIETY. FIRST, IT IS REDUCING PRINT MEDIA WHICH IS REDUCING THE AMOUNT OF TIME WE SIT AND READ. SECOND, IT IS REFORMATTING MEDIA A BOOK NOW HAS HYPERLINKS AND REQUIRES US TO LOOK AROUND THE PAGE RATHER THAN JUST FROM LEFT TO RIGHT. AND LASTLY IS HAVING EXTERNAL MEDIA IMPACTS

ITS BECOMING EMBEDDED INTO EVERYTHING WE DO IN OUR DAY TO LIFE. IN FACT, MAJORITY OF AMERICANS NOW INTERACT WITH THIS NEW MACHINE/TOOL NEARLY EIGHT AND A HALF HOURS A DAY IN SOME FORM. DOES: IT ALLOWS HIM TO LAY THE GROUNDWORK FOR ANSWERING HIS LAST QUESTION OF WHETHER OR NOT TECHNOLOGY MAY BE PUSHING ASIDE DEEP THINKING. WITHOUT REALLY EVEN TOUCHING ON IT DIRECTLY, HES PROVIDED OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE THAT THIS NEW TOOL IS ABSOLUTELY PULLING US AWAY FROM SILENT SUSTAINED READING AND DEEP THINKING MERELY BECAUSE OF THE FACT THAT IF WE ARE SPENDING THIS MUCH TIME INTERACTING WITH IT, WE HAVE TO BE SPENDING LESS TIME WITH BOOKS. CHAPTER 6 SAYS: EVEN THOUGH THE BOOK HAS BEEN THE SLOWEST FORM OF MEDIA TO BE SUCKED INTO THE LAND OF THE INTERNET, THE INTERNET IS

GRADUALLY FINDING WAYS TO RECREATE THE BOOK. WITH KINDLES, HYPERLINKS AND DISTRACTIONS ARE BECOMING EMBEDDED INTO THE BOOK. NOT ONLY DOES THIS AFFECT THE WAY WE READ, IT ALSO AFFECTS THE WAY WE WRITE. THE INTERNET IS CHIPPING AWAY AT LINEAR THINKING. IF LINEAR THINKING IS REDUCED, WILL THIS AFFECT OUR ABILITY TO THINK DEEPLY? DOES: ADDS ADDITIONAL SUPPORT TO THE IDEA THAT DEEP THINKING MAY BE GETTING PUSHED ASIDE. HE CAN CONCLUDE THAT THE INTERNET IS DEFINITELY AFFECTING LINEAR THINKING, WHICH NOW MEANS, HE JUST NEEDS TO DETERMINE WHETHER LINEAR THINKING IS CRITICAL TO DEEP THOUGHT. CHAPTER 7 SAYS: THERE ARE THREE MAIN TYPES OF MEMORY (LONG-TERM, SHORT-TERM,

AND WORKING). THE INTERNET DISTRACTS THE WORKING MEMORY WHICH CREATES LINKS FROM THE SHORT-TERM TO THE LONG-TERM. THE INTERNET IS FULL OF DISTRACTIONS. AS THE WORKING MEMORY GETS DISTRACTED, IT CANNOT MAKE THE CONNECTIONS NECESSARY FOR DEEP THOUGHT AND ULTIMATELY LONG-TERM MEMORY. ITS LIKE TRYING TO CATCH WATER FROM A POURING SPOUT WITH A THIMBLE. OUR BRAINS SIMPLY CANNOT TAKE IN THE INFORMATION BECAUSE OF THE COMBINATION OF OVERLOAD AND DISTRACTION. DOES: THIS CHAPTER MAKES THE CONNECTION ABOUT HIS QUESTION IN CHAPTER 4 OF WHETHER THE INTERNET IS PUSHING ASIDE DEEP THINKING AND HOW THE BRAIN ACTUALLY WORKS. ITS CLEAR THAT THIS IS A TOOL THAT NOT ONLY DISTRACTS AND AFFECTS LINEAR THINKING, IT IS ALSO AFFECTING DEEP THINKING AND LONG-TERM MEMORY. CHAPTER 8

SAYS: SOME ARGUE THAT GOOGLE IS PERFECT TOOL FOR GAINING AND STORING KNOWLEDGE. GOOGLE, HOWEVER, HAD TO MAKE MONEY. THE BEST WAY TO MAKE MONEY WAS THROUGH ADVERTISEMENT. ADS WERE EMBEDDED INTO THE PAGES FULL OF INFORMATION. ADVERTISERS DEMANDED THEIR ADS BE SEEN IF THEY WERE PAYING LARGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY, SO GOOGLE DID WHAT THEY COULD TO ENCOURAGE USERS TO CLICK ON THE ADS AND LINKS. DOES: THIS SERVES TWO PURPOSES. IT PRESENTS A COUNTER-ARGUMENT AND ADDRESSES IT. SOME STILL BELIEVE THAT IF INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE, WE HAVE ACCESS TO KNOWLEDGE. HOWEVER, WE ALREADY KNOW THAT THE MORE DISTRACTION THERE IS, THE MORE IT REDUCED THE AMOUNT OF INFORMATION WE RETAIN AND THE DEEPER WE THINK ABOUT IT. SO, THIS BRINGS CARR TO HIS SECOND PURPOSE FOR THIS CHAPTER, WHICH IS TO PRESENT THE GREAT IRONY OF THE INTERNET AND GOOGLE. WHILE IT IS FULL OF INFORMATION THAT SEEMS TO GIVE ACCESS TO KNOWLEDGE, IT ACTUALLY CAUSES US TO HAVE LESS KNOWLEDGE

BECAUSE WE SIMPLY CANT THINK DEEPLY ABOUT IT AND WE WONT REMEMBER IT. CHAPTER 9 SAYS: SOCRATES MIGHT HAVE BEEN RIGHT. WE ARE EXCHANGING KNOWLEDGE FOR ACCESS TO DATA. BY OVERWHELMING THE WORKING MEMORY, DEVALUE LONG-TERM MEMORY, DEEP THINKING, AND KNOWLEDGE. WHEN SYNAPTIC CONNECTIONS CANNOT BE MADE IN OUR BRAIN, INDIVIDUAL PERSPECTIVE IS DIMINISHED AND AS A RESULT OF LESS INDIVIDUAL PERSPECTIVE OUR CULTURE AS A WHOLE IS BEING DIMINISHED. DOES: ALTHOUGH HE NEVER EXPLICITLY STATES IT, HE IS DRAWING A CONCLUSION TO HIS ORIGINAL QUESTION IS THE INTERNET AFFECTING THE WAY I THINK. ITS CLEAR THAT IT IS. HE HAS PRESENTED SOME COUNTER ARGUMENTS, BUT MOST OF THEM HAVE BEEN ADDRESSED, AND HES CAREFUL TO GIVE SOME CONCESSIONS. HE CONCEDES THAT THE INTERNET AFFECTS OTHER PARTS OF THE BRAIN IN POSITIVE WAYS, WHICH ACCOUNTS FOR INCREASES IN IQ SCORES. HOWEVER, HE FEELS

CONFIDENT THAT THE INTERNET HAS IMPACTED HIS BRAIN IN SUCH A WAY THAT IT HAS CAUSED HIS DIFFICULTY IN CONCENTRATING WHEN HE GOES TO READ A BOOK. NOW HE POSES A FINAL QUESTION: IF THIS IS THE CASE, COULD THIS NOT ONLY END UP AFFECTING INDIVIDUALS BUT ALSO SOCIETY AND CULTURE AS A WHOLE. CHAPTER 10 SAYS: ELIZA WAS A COMPUTER PROGRAM THAT WAS AN EXPERIMENT IN HOW CLOSE WE COULD COME TO MAKING A MACHINE HUMAN-LIKE. WE CONTINUE TO EXPERIMENT WITH THIS IN THE FORM OF SIRI AND ALEXA. HE NOTES THAT HUMANS HAVE ALWAYS ATTEMPTED TO INTERACT WITH EVERYTHING IN A HUMAN WAY. HOWEVER, AS SOCRATES AND PLATO NOTED SO LONG AGO, WE SHOULD BE CAUTIOUS ABOUT THIS. AS WE USE TOOLS, THE TOOL DIMINISHES OUR ABILITY TO USE THE SKILL WITHOUT THE TOOL. DOES: THIS PRESENTS US WITH HIS FINAL MESSAGE. HE FULLY UNDERSTANDS THAT

HUMANS WILL BE HUMANS; HOWEVER, HE AGREES WITH SOCRATES AND PLATO BECAUSE THE STAKES HAVE NEVER BEEN SO HIGH. HE IMPLIES THAT IT MAY HAVE BEEN OKAY TO CREATE A TRACTOR TO PLOW THE EARTH. WE MAY LOSE THE ABILITY TO PLOW THE EARTH WITHOUT A TRACTOR, BUT THE REALITY IS, WE COULD ALWAYS GO BACK TO PLOWING BY HAND, IT WOULD JUST BE MUCH, MUCH SLOWER. THE INTERNET IS A TOOL THAT AFFECTS A SKILL WE CANT AFFORD TO LOSE HOW TO THINK. IF WE EVER LOSE THE INTERNET, SOCIETY COULD AND CULTURE COULD TAKE A DRASTIC STEP BACKWARDS AND WE MAY LACK THE ABILITY TO COME UP WITH THOUGHTFUL WAY TO TURN IT BACK AROUND. SO, HIS CONCLUSION IS THAT WE SHOULD BE THOUGHTFUL ABOUT THIS AND CONSIDER ALL CONSEQUENCES. CONSIDER IT AS A WHOLE: 1.INTRODUCED AN IDEA OR HIS DEVELOPING THOUGHTS ON A TOPIC. 2.EXPLORE WHETHER THE BRAIN IS EVEN CAPABLE OF CHANGING IT IS. 3.EXPLORE WHAT CHANGES IT. IT TURNS OUT TOOLS DO. THE INTERNET IS A TOOL! HMM..

4.LETS DIG DEEPER THEN INTO THINKING. DEEP, CRITICAL THINKING DEVELOPS THROUGH SUSTAINED READING. 5.THE INTERNET IS CHANGING OR RESTRICTING THE TOOLS WE USE (BOOKS, MAGAZINES, ETC.) TO THINK DEEPLY. 6.COUNTER-ARGUMENT: BUT CANT WE JUST READ ONLINE? RESPONSE NOPE, THE INTERNET IS STRIPPING LINEAR READING/THINKING AND SCATTERING OUR THOUGHTS. 7.EXPLORE MORE: IF THE INTERNET IS FULL OF DISTRACTION, HOW DOES THAT AFFECT THE BRAIN. WORKING MEMORY IS GREATLY AFFECTED, WHICH REDUCES LONG AND SHORT-TERM MEMORY. 8.COUNTER-ARGUMENT: BUT GOOGLE PRIDES ITSELF ON KNOWLEDGE FOR ALL. RESPONSE: IRONICALLY, GOOGLE UNINTENTIONALLY HAS BECOME A PERFECT STORM FOR DISTRACTION. 9.IF ALL OF THE THINGS I LEARNED ARE TRUE, THEN THE INTERNET IS ACTUALLY CHANGING THE BRAIN BY REDUCING SYNAPTIC CONNECTIONS. ALL OF THIS LEADS TO DIMINISHING INDIVIDUAL THOUGHT AND PERSPECTIVE, WHICH IN TURN COULD AFFECT CULTURE AS A WHOLE. 10.FINAL THOUGHTS: IF TOOLS (INTERNET) DIMINISHES OUR ABILITY TO USE THE SKILL (THINKING) WITHOUT THE TOOL, THEN WE TRULY DO NEED TO THINK ABOUT WHAT WERE DOING TO OURSELVES AND OUR CULTURE BECAUSE THERE COULD COME A DAY WHEN WE ULTIMATELY LOSE OUR ABILITY TO THINK FOR OURSELVES.
