Lisa has been assigned to write a persuasive paper about a topic that interests her personally. Lisa has chosen to write a paper in favor of students being allowed to have cell phones at school. Which of the following is the best claim for Lisa's paper? A. My best friend's $200 cell phone was taken away from her because she was using it between classes in the hall. B. There are a lot of high-tech cell phones that include features like cameras, mp3 players, Internet access, and GPS. C. Students should have the right to have cell phones at school because they are important to student safety. D. Some, but not all, students misuse their cell phones by texting each other the answers to exam questions.

YoungBlood:

D. i say because it is persuasive in giving phone rights but not necessarily negating what the teachers want still keeping phones from some

toga:

The best claim for Lisa's paper would be: C. Students should have the right to have cell phones at school because they are important to student safety.

umm:

Persuasive means having the ability to convince someone to agree with a particular point of view, belief, or action. When something is persuasive, it is effective in influencing someone's thoughts, feelings, or behaviors. C would be correct given the claim can be backed by evidence and examples, such as instances where students have used cell phones to report emergencies, coordinate during natural disasters, or ensure personal safety while traveling to and from school.

somnium:

C would be best because it gives a nod to safety, which would be most positively adressed by adults. If she were advocating for the usage of phones, C would be effective, as it takes a side of a positive piece of the possibility.
