Writing Assignment #3: Research-Supported Essay

Writing Assignment #3 will be a research-supported essay.

Courses that fulfill the General Education Requirements (GERs) at UMUC all have a common theme—technological transformations.  In following this theme throughout this semester in WRTG 101, we have read the analyses of various authors on innovations and technological transformations in education and in other fields. 

I have a cause/effect paper already on this topic that can be used as a basis for this paper. I will send to scholar as an attachment along with 4 required sources to use.

In this essay, you will continue this theme of technological transformations.
