Analytical Paragraph (Selfies)

Writing essays often means writing about topics that are not your strength or interests. One such topic might be selfies. Whether or not you take selfies, they exist and people have their reasons for doing them. Write an introduction to an essay arguing whether selfies are a good practice or a bad one. Provide evidence and support. You may use others’ opinions/sources like Jaime, Howard, Jessica or Amy from the article, “Why We Take Selfies” by R. Kay Green or the My Selfie, My Self by Jenna Wortham. Include a hook that introduces the topic, a thesis, and two reasons that support your thesis.
