Product Description
If your students are anything like mine-- their cell phones have become an integral part of their day-to-day lives. During our Transcendentalism unit, in the spirit of men such as Whitman, Thoreau, and Emerson... I ask the students to give up their cell phones and write about it.

I had students actually crying on the day they dropped off their phones with me. Once the experiment was over, the discussion was both hilarious and enlightening. I seriously encourage you to try this project!

This file also includes an article detailing a professor's approach and the assignment, and a permission slip for parents' to sign.
