Are tablets for inmates a good idea or a bad idea, and why? Regardless of which side you choose you should think about the impact on the inmates, the correctional officers, and the facility.
When writing a position paper you should take a strong position for or against the topic (so for this paper you are either in favor of giving inmates tablets, or against them having tablets). Then you will describe the rationale for that position based on facts that provide a solid foundation for your argument. In a position paper you should: 1) Use evidence to support your position, such as statistical evidence or dates and events, 2) Validate your position with authoritative references or quotations, and 3) Examine the strengths and weaknesses of your position.
