This packet offers students the opportunity to research the very current and relevant issue of teenage sexting. Included are an introductory video link, an argumentative prompt, and six articles and documents focused on the implications of teenage sexting. Sources range from a Congressional bill currently under review, a webpage created by a mother whose daughter committed suicide after a sexting event, excerpts from Common Sense Education's Teenage Guide to Sexting, and a variety of current event articles from major news sources. I assemble these types of research packets so students can write their research papers when computer time is scarce, particularly during standardized testing windows. This packet provides all the sources students require to write a research paper without actually doing the online research. Each source is one page, includes an MLA formatted citation, and is fully editable. Please note that all of these documents are available on the internet; I have curated them into a one stop research packet.
I used this packet with my 11th and 12th grade students. Although the topic may be too sensitive for some schools, the packet contains no inappropriate material or pictures.
