Response To Text Dodinga 1858

Today i have completed my Response To Text and it was about a story called Dodinga 1858 and the author of the story was Paul Mason. For my Response To Text i had to read the book and do the slides about it. My favourite part about this task was finding out what some of the words in the text mean.  I found this really fun and interesting to do.

Opinon Writting

Today I have completed my Opinion Writing and it was about if you think that gaming should be taught in school. We had to write a short Eassy showing us why we think that gaming should be taught in School, i found this really fun and interesting. 

I think that gaming should be taught in school for a number of reasons. Firstly,  because the school could teach you to be calm and not rage if you die or lose. School can also  teach you to not use bad language when playing a game. Secondly,  If gaming was taught at school then people who are shy could make friends and be able to talk to people and communicate easily because sometimes when you are playing a game online you can talk to people and communicate with them. 

 Thirdly, This could help you to be more calm and not angry. If you get angry school could teach you to stop playing and calm down, and also take some deep breaths. 

Lastly, If gaming was taught in school then lots of kids and adults  could make lots of money from streaming games on Twitch or post their own videos on youtube. They could also take part in the E sports.
