Should phones be aloud in school. I think so because it takes to much time to use a real dictionary. You could just pull the word up in one second with your phone. If you need to pull a website up for school you don't have to wait in the long line to use the computer for 5 minutes.


Phones should not be allowed in school. They are a distraction to learning. Sure, they could be used as an easy way to look up words, but they also can be used for games and social media, which distract students from getting a full and proper education. Phones are unnecessary and avoidable disturbances in the learning environment. Other resources provided at schools should be able to trump the "education" purposes of these mobile devices, as ulterior motives for usage (in and out of school) include communication, games, social media, etc.

Regardless, a true master debater keeps him or herself up to a standard of using proper grammar, and a wide range of vocabulary. Do not let Pro be the cause of your neglect in providing a well-structured argument. Your argument, though clearly better in both grammar and detail compared to Pro's, does possess a small amount of grammar mistakes.

That's why, right from the start, I had the confidence to take Pro on and win. But we'll see.

The irony in the amount of grammatical mistakes in the resolution is palpable.
