Yeah, so I have an English 2000 paper due Monday. The Topic is as follows: [spoiler][quote]"Thus, your paper should respond to the simple question: is reading and writing important? In your prewriting stage, you may want to rework the simplified version of this question to create more nuanced, or specific one. For instance, how does adding “print” or “digitally” before “important”? change the question? How about adding “for cognition” after “important”? To answer this question, you will have to not only define those key activities, but you must define the more complex term—literacy. What does it mean to be literate, especially in today’s ever-changing digital, multimedia world? Why is literacy important?"[/quote][/spoiler] I have it mostly written and am currently trying to revise it, and the number one bit of feedback I have is "write a better opening sentence." currently, my opening sentence is the following: [quote]"The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines literacy as “The ability to read and write” [/quote] This sentence fits in the paper, but I need something better to go before it and open up the paper, but I can't think of shit. So, does anyone have a good opening line I could use?
