- When Does Monitoring Your Children Through Technology Cross the Line into Invasion of Privacy?
For this week, choose any "Room for Debate" question that sounds interesting. You do not have to limit yourself to one of the four topics above. Read all the different essays associated with the question. Then submit a comment that answers the following questions:
- Which essay most closely represents your point of view on this question. And why?
- What specific idea in any of the essays do you most disagree with? Why?
Grammar notes: Always use quotation marks to cite the titles of essays. Please capitalize correctly. In American usage, always include periods and commas inside quotation marks. For example, "This is not correct". "This is correct."
Caveat emptor: You can only access 10 articles per month on The New York Times website per electronic device, so keep that in mind as you peruse the different topics. Thankfully, in terms of the "Room for Debate" series, it only counts the whole question and all the associated essays as one article, so you could explore up to ten questions. You can download the NY Times app. for free for your cell phone, so that would be a way to read some additional ones. I'm working on getting us all some type of free access.
