Taylor has been a bit perturbed with me over a certain issue, so instead of acting out like most pre-teens would do, she’s debating me with written word.
Below is the exact copy of her “persuasive essay”
Hope you enjoy it half as much as I did.
Prompt: Should Taylor be allowed to bring her iPad to school? Suport your answer.
I believe that I should be able to bring my iPad to school for a number of reasons but the main three reasons are: 1. It will enhance my education. 2. It will be more convenient to other students. 3.It will make being organized even easier for me.
As stated earlier, bringing my iPad to school will enhance my education. You might be thinking, "How will an iPad enhance someone's education." I know it sounds unlikely but it will work out. I have books on my iPad so just in case I forget my S.S.R (Sustained Silent Reading.) book, I can just read on my iPad. Also, I have apps to help me with math and other subjects.
Okay, the second reason might sound unlikely to you but it makes sense. Bringing MY iPad to school will be more convenient to other students because all of the computers in our school are HORRIBLE so if I bring my iPad, I can just use this so another student can use a functional computer.
The third reason supports itself. It doesn't matter how smart you are, if you're not organized than you aren't going to get anywhere. I think that bringing my iPad to school will not only help me become even more organized, but it will also boost my grades because of my organizational skills.
Alright, I know your still not comfortable with the idea of me bringing my iPad to school, even with all of the above reasons I have given you. I am now going to address some of your most extreme concerns. 1. You're afraid I might drop it, bump it into something, smash it ect. 2. You're afraid I will lose it or it will get stolen. 3. You're afraid I will get caught playing on it in the middle of class and get it taken up.
Reason one is a valid reason, but its highly unlikely. If you haven't noticed an, iPad is very large and mine has a protective case with a lot of traction. Plus I carry the iPad between my notebooks so it will have more protection in case someone does bump into me.
Number two isn't probable. How do you lose an iPad? It's fairly large and difficult to misplace. It being stolen doesn't make sense either because they would: 1. Obviously be caught because I'm the only one in the school with this case. 2. Doesn't have and iPad 10 minutes ago, walks to the next class with and iPad. 3. My iPad has an engravement on the back so I would have proof. 4. NOTHING has ever been stolen all year so I think it's fine. You would have to have some judgment issues if you were going to steal an iPad.
Number three is just plain stupid. You can't really hide an iPad underneath a desk and play with it! It's just not practical. Therefore, if I'm not playing with it the teacher would have no reason to take it up.The desks have baskets underneath the desks so I will just keep it under there with a layer of books for extra protection.
In conclusion, there is really no reason I shouldn't be able to bring my iPad to school that I haven't supported above. I have addressed both sides of the argument and supported my case on both sides of the argument. Therefore, you should let me bring my iPad to school.
