I = Introduce (let readers know you’re using a quote) C = Cite (tell me where it’s coming from) E = Explain (why does it relate to your proposition/argument/main idea?) Your challenge when you explain is to go deeper! You use the quote saying kids spend more time watching tv than they do in school. How does that show violence in the media affects kids? I can guess that watching a lot of violence is bad. YOUR JOB IS TO TELL ME WHY THAT MATTERS!
We’re going to look at some examples of using quotes in our paragraphs. Think about what the person did well. Think about what needs to improvement and how they can improve it.
Children are affected by violence in the media. Eugene says, “Studies reveal that children watch approximately 28 hours of television a week, more time than they spend ins school.” That shows what kids watch when they watch tv.
I agree that violence behavior is a result from seeing violence in the media. Eugene V. Beresin asserts in many different ways that children and young adults see violence in the media. He states, “99% of homes have televisions.” This means that there are going to be some violent tv shows. As these violent shows become more popular, more and more violent shows will be created. Kids and young adults are impacted by what they see in these shows.
I agree with the author when he states that media violence has an effect on children today. It is scary that the average child views over 16,000 murders before age 18. Also, 99% of Americans have a tv in their homes. That is a lot of people. So those are only some of the reasons I believe that media violence has an impact on children and teens.
Children will be aggressive if they see violence in the media. Author Eugene Beresin writes, “The typical American child will view more than 200,000 acts of violence, including 16,000 murders before age 18.” That means that kids will watch thousands of murders and violence and might think it’s ok. The violence they see is so constant that they are immune to how bad it is. Violence in the media does have an impact on children.
