Product Description
Have your students read and write about whether or not they think students should be able to bring their own devices to school! This is bound to be a hot-button issue among your students, and I think they will enjoy defending their stance with text evidence.

First, students will read two nonfiction articles that discuss the pros and cons of the issue; then, they will complete a graphic organizer which helps them plot out their 3-paragraph opinion essay. Once you've read over their drafts, give them the cute device-themed stationery to write their final copy on, and grade them using the included rubric. Everything you need is ready to print and go!

Included:
1. Text 1: A magazine article that identifies several pros of BYOD.
2. Text 2: A magazine article that identifies several cons of BYOD.
3. Writing Prompt & Tips: Explains the prompt and offers tips to help students do their best writing.
4. Opinion Essay Poster
5. Graphic Organizer: ORE-RE-REO style
6. Exemplar: I wrote a model essay with the opinion that students should be allowed to bring their own devices, using reasons based on evidence from both articles; however, either stance can be supported with at least 3 reasons found in the texts. Show the exemplar to students to give them an idea of what you expect.
7. Stationery: Three different black-and-write device-themed writing papers
8. Rubric: Based on 100 points, aligned with Common Core / TNReady Standards
