I would like to write an argumentative essay on the policy of not being able to use you phone or iPod at lunch. It does not make sense to not be able to play a game on your phone during lunch. How does it hurt the learning environment or distracts form the students education. I understand not being able to use it during class because, that is just common sense. However, there is no valid point on not being able to use it during lunch. An argumentative essay is an essay where you plead your case or our side of an argument. You are trying to convince someone of something or to do something.
