The American Heritage Dictionary defines a paradox asThe Productivity Paradox

The American Heritage Dictionary defines a paradox as:

NOUN:
1. A seemingly contradictory statement that may nonetheless be true: the paradox that standing is more tiring than walking.
2. One exhibiting inexplicable or contradictory aspects: “The silence of midnight, to speak truly, though apparently a paradox, rung in my ears” (Mary Shelley).

3. An assertion that is essentially self-contradictory, though based on a valid deduction from acceptable premises.

4. A statement contrary to received opinion.

And, productivity is defined as:

NOUN:

1. The quality of being productive.

2. Economics The rate at which goods or services are produced especially output per unit of labor.
3. Ecology The rate at which radiant energy is used by producers to form organic substances as food for consumers

For our purposes this week, we are interested in the productivity paradox and why organizations spend resources on information technology. Consider the following:

Nobel Prize-winning economist Robert Solow has said that we see computers everywhere except in the productivity statistics. What did he mean?

To answer this question, use a search engine (www.ask.com, www.google.com, www.yahoo.com, etc.) to search for “productivity paradox”. Review at least five (5) credible links and form an understanding of this phenomenon.

Write a short essay (3-4 substantial paragraphs minimum) explaining the productivity paradox. Additionally, cite examples of the paradox, theorized reasons for the paradox, and personal experiences or anecdotes. Ask others about their experiences in organizations. Have they encountered examples of the paradox?

An effective argumentative essay must have evidence to make its case; most arguments that occur in daily life happen in the heat of the moment and are more likely directed toward saving one's own pride than toward giving clear and supportive proof to one's claimsArgumentation Essay

Write a 500-750 word argumentation/persuasion essay using any approach as a method of development.

An effective argumentative essay must have evidence to make its case; most arguments that occur in daily life happen in the heat of the moment and are more likely directed toward saving one's own pride than toward giving clear and supportive proof to one's claims.

Writing Approach
Knowing how to brainstorm is going to save you from writing a weak essay. Also, knowing how to support your claims with evidence from outside sources will further strengthen your essay. For that reason, this assignment requires the use of two references (no internet sources). In addition, you will add a Works Cited page at the end of your essay. Finally, your Works Cited page will be in Modern Language Association (MLA) format so that all information provided will be easy for your reader to find.
Purpose: to persuade

Method of Development: your choice

Use any of the following topics:

-Giving birth control devices to teenager
-Living at home after college
-The drinking age
-Spouses sharing housework equally
-Global warming
-Legalizing marijuana
-Political campaigns
-Reinstating the military draft
-The homeless

Reminders:

1. You must use source material within this essay creating both in-text citations and a Works cited page in MLA format.

2. Source material must be credible. Do not “Google” for sources. No blogs, Wikipedia, WebMD, eHow, about.com, ask.com or any other generic web source. You need two (minimum) quality sources with authors and titles from credible publication. Use the library online databases or the Library of Congress online database only.

2. Choose a topic that does not rely on sacred texts to argue (Bible, Koran, etc) You must consider your audience as diverse so you cannot assume your readers read or believe the same sacred texts you do.

3. Research for appropriate evidence to support your argument. While you are researching, be sure to note all information necessary to filling out your Works Cited page for that entry. Do not insert bullets, lists, charts, graphs, or images. All information must be narrated in sentence form and cited in MLA format.

4. Remember to provide a full 5 sentence conclusion and follow that with a Works Cited page in MLA format.

Analysis of themes for short stories

Use ONE of the critical approaches (formalist, biographical, historical, sociological, psychological or mythological) to analyze ONE theme (i.e. religion, family dynamics, racism, sexuality, etc.) of ONE of the short stories. You should act as the critic and use one of these approaches to make an argument about the theme. Discuss the choices the author makes through the critical lens you select. Supplement your discussion with at least one outside critical article on the short story that discusses the story’s other literary elements, such as characters (protagonist, antagonist, flat, round), the plot, narrative structure (chronological, flashbacks, flash forwards, etc.), setting, dialogue, conflict; etc. Consider how the deeper meaning of the story is constructed by the author, the text and/or the reader. Note: a biography of the author, while in some instances necessary, is not a critical source

Requirements: Your essay/reflection should include:
An introduction that provides an engaging overview of your topic (avoid a plot summary; assume the reader knows the story).
A strong, clear, and identifiable thesis statement that states your argument, or claim about the work.
Multiple body paragraphs that include your own original ideas to prove your argument and sub-claims about how the text should be interpreted.
Supporting evidence (i.e. quotes, summary, or paraphrase) from the story and your critical source to back up your ideas (make sure to use MLA in-text citations and a Works Cited page to credit your source.).
Use of literary terms and vocabulary discussed in this class to articulate your ideas
A conclusion that revisits your thesis and leaves the reader with a final thought
Accurate spelling, grammar, and syntax.
