Sternheimer begins with introducing us to a “first person shooter” game called “Doom”(214). With this multi-billion dollar game industry rising, she points out that there are three school shooting cases that the press emphasizes the shooters being “video-game experts” (215) to the game Doom, only making the “critics’ predictions” (214) about video games come true. Sternheimer begins by explaining how video game violence has become “folk devils” (214). This term allows media and politicians to “channel the blame and fear to remedy what many believe to be a growing problem” (214). Politicians are one of the main factors in targeting video games as the leading cause of violent behavior in teens, according to Sternheimer.
Under 30: The Dumbest Generation In his best-selling book, The Dumbest Generation, Mark Bauerlein claims that the current people under 30 years old are the dumbest generation in history. Technology has overtaken the under 30 generation causing their lives and learning to be changed for the worse. To start, technology has created people who are unable to think deeply and answer hard questions. In an excerpt from the book, The Dumbest Generation, Bauerlein writes, “The 18-year-old may have a Visa card, cell phone, My Space page, part-time job, Playstation 2, and an admissions letter from State U., bu task this wired and on-the-go high school senior a few intellectual questions and the facade of in-the-know-ness crumbles” (Bauerlein).
I Think to me this movie could be divided into two mini-movies. One movie is a coming-of-age story told through the eyes of a six-year-old girl named Scout. Scout and her older brother, Jem play in the hot, hazy Alabama sun every day and they have adventures with their next door neighbor, whom they just met. They tell each other tales about another neighbor of theirs named Mr. Radley, whom rumor has it chained up his son, Boo every day. I believe this part of the story was told extremely well.

Next day, I pulled up at the Smith Park with my ball and the same NBA jersey. I met a 6’11 person. He offered me to be my coach and he will teach about the games, earnestness, and determination toward basketball forasmuch his son had passed away in the winter at my age and the attachment to his son. Therefore, he wanted to convey Germile 's passion with basketball by enlightening me because he lost the chance to train his son. After then, every morning even It 's dark and the snow is still falling, clumps of wet flakes drifting endlessly down, the air moist, the sidewalk mushy underfoot.
Oftentimes, teachers give out loads of homework that are not essential to student learning. Some people believe that homework teaches students discipline by teaching them time management. This study shows quite the contrary, writing “[e]xcessive amounts of homework [...] teach students to take shortcuts, rather than instill in them discipline and time-management skills” (“Is Homework Beneficial to Students?” n. pag.). When students receive busy work they often turn to their classmates for answers or go through the assignment hastily and without effort.
Back in 8th grade, my best friend at the time Jack Carlson moved away to Georgie because his dad got a new job so I still play Xbox with him and we talk, let's flash forward to the sophomore year. This has to be the hardest year of my life, and I don’t know the exact definition for having depression but I definitely know my anxiety mixed with my being very sad all the time made me depressed. I was very sad at this time in my life and would often come home and question my existence in this world and what I really meant to people, I may look happy but thats because of my best friends keeping me happy and because of video games, it was like an outlet for me to forget about the tough times and really just enjoy the moment, this is what I learned, you could be so caught up in the past, you should just enjoy what time you have on this earth and no one should take that from you. For me video games are not just a waste of time as many people view it as, I view it as more as therapy because it got me through my parents divorce, losing friends and also dealing with being depressed and who knows what I have done without video games because I am glad I discovered this in

But all this technology comes at a price, it is taking away our ability to think deeply on our own. It is harder to concentrate, learn, or even read a book. teens today are arguably well educated. But not as they were years ago. If you ask a teen any intellectual questions they will not answer them as a teen would years ago.
Millennials are people born in the 1980s or 1990s, also known as members of Generation Y. By many, this generation is viewed as dumb, lazy, and incoherent. Despite all of these accusations, after reading numerous sources, it is evident that the claim that the under-thirty generation is the “dumbest” is inaccurate because Generation Y has to adapt to more things at a quicker pace, has a financial struggle that is almost unbearable for young adults, and has to compete with other ambitious job applicants for the same position. To begin, in “The Value of Millennials: That’s my generation” by Claire Whitley, it is inarguable that Millennials have to overcome and adapt to more unexpected changes and developments than generation X had to. Many
