ABSTRACT
The article presents the contrasting views of students Brendan Markowski and Amal Naqvi on the issue of banning rainbow loom bracelets in U.S. schools. Markowski supports the ban saying that some students get distracted during class because they are playing with their bracelets. Navqi believes that designing bracelets during free time is a creative art process that enhances the brain power of students and should not be banned.
