Eng-105: topic 6 first draft of a commentary assignment

 

For this assignment, write a 750-1,000-word commentary that addresses a trend/topic related to ADHD.

According to Trimbur (2013) in The Call to Write, “Commentary is a genre of writing that uses analysis and interpretation to find patterns of meaning in events, trends, and ideas. The purpose of commentary is not simply to report on things but to give readers a way to make sense of them.”

This means that your essay should review asingle trend related to ADHD. For instance, you could analyze one of the following trends (you are not limited to this list; these are suggestions):

·         Increase in ADHD Diagnoses

·         Impact of ADHD on a Child’s Schooling

·         Impact of New ADHD Treatments

·         Hidden Dangers of ADHD Medications

·         The Reasoning Behind ADHD Awareness Week

·         ADHD and the Zombie Phenomenon

·         ADHD Drug Overdoses

This essay is NOT a summary of several different elements of ADHD. Rather, it is an analysis of a single trend related to ADHD, including various elements of that single trend.

Your review should include at least fivescholarly sources outside of class texts.

Directions

1.      Label or Identify the Subject: Provide the name for the trend and provide some context or background for the subject.

2.      Explain the Subject: Find a pattern of meaning in the trend (e.g., speculate as to causes and effects of an event, compare with a similar case, or offer an example).

3.      Make a Judgment/Offer an Opinion: Evaluate the trend using third person; offer praise or critique the trend, offering evidence to support your claims.
