In Clive Thompson’s article, “The New Literacy,” I agree with what Andrea Lunsford says. She believes that technology has helped our writing not hurt it. One of her main points was that students do so much more writing outside of school now than they did before Internet. People are always writing to an audience, whether it is one person or many, professor or friends. Students were more excited to write about anything other than their schoolwork because their homework was only being done to get a grade. “ … knowing who you’re writing for and why you’re writing might be the most crucial factor of all.” Technology causes us to practice our writing making it better and better every time we write.
