How can I improve this lesson and challenge students' assumptions about the world we live in?

Problem of practice
How do we engage students while preparing for ELA Regents and addressing CCLS?The academic problem is that students have a difficult time making arguments based on research and facts--they rely on opinion and passion. There is a broad behavioral and societal problem of being a slave to digital media by constantly checking our phones, email, Facebook, and Twitter. We are not as present in actual interactions because we are distracted and absorbed in an addictive cyber world.
Teach students how to analyze non-fiction, write argumentative essays based on research and facts, and use technology to create content to join the online conversation and community.
