Explanation

My counterargument is cell phones should be completely banned from school classrooms because they do not allow students to focus on class work, and it creates a barrier between the student and the teacher. Students are not able to multi-task while working and looking at their phones, and this allows the student to get behind and not understand the lesson. I chose the statistics technique because it helps portray to the audience how cell phones and electronic devices hinder the student during the day. The pictures help directly show that many students bring their cell phones to class and it shows how much they use them. I chose this slogan because if we care able to ban cell phone use in classrooms, including college, we would be able to keep students interacted within the lesson. It would allow the teachers and professors to know that the students are not playing games or scrolling on social media to not be bored.

Reflection

I learned that bias includes opinions and shouldn't be used in research papers. Propaganda helps show and explain to readers about certain topics, and tries to get them to change their opinion about the topic. Propaganda also tries to get people to buy something, but it wouldn't be used for this topic. My paper doesn't contain bias because I used my research directly to explain how this would possibly affect the students in this situation. I did not use my own opinion, but used research to explain my stance. Being forced to to persuade others of my counterargument will help my first body paragraph by showing others the good side of cell phones, but forcing them to see that cell phones can hinder them. It helps show readers that cell phones can be good or bad, but they are more bad in classrooms because students use them throughout the day for an outlet out of the assignment.
