Persuasive Writing

For the past 2 weeks, Room 5 has been writing persuasive texts to try and convince others to accept their expressed views. 
Why you should be able to play Fortnite at
by: Lachlan Norris

Hey you!, have you wanted to play video games at school. Well I have.
This is why:

Studies at university of Toronto have shown that shooter/action video games
like COD (Call Of Duty), Assassin's Creed ect, can increase your hand-eye
coordination. Also it can increase your reaction time, that both can help in a
serious situation. Hand-eye coordination can help in things like baseball,
tennis, table tennis and any martial arts.

Furthermore it can encourage teamwork, if you play in squads you have to
gang up to eliminate another squad. This will help younger children learn the
importance of teamwork. While playing they will also teach the children to
share. In squads one player might have a lot of medium ammo.
Another player might need some and give some rockets in exchange.

A Lot of food is gone to waste because people are not eating their
lunch, so students will only be able to play if they have ate all of their
lunch. Now parents will be happy because the work gone into the lunch,
was worth it.

Moreover, out of all the video games I chose Fortnite.
That is because of the kid friendly appearance.
There is no blood but there are funny looking characters.
If you get shot there is no puncture hole in the skin. There are different
modes solos, duos, and what I mentioned before, squads.
LTMs(limited time modes) can come out. They can be like sniper
shootout (only snipers), 50v50 (Two teams of 50 people) 20v20v20v20v20
( Five teams of 20) and more. Fortnite is not like a game that is similar to GTA
(Grand Theft Auto)

I believe that students should be able to play Fortnite at lunch because
it helps children increase their hand-eye coordination and reaction time.
It also helps them learn the role of teamwork, and there will be empty lunch
boxes which makes parents feel like the hard work paid off.

Do you want your kids to be interactive?
Do want them to not to be lazy?
In my opinion kids should be allowed to bring beyblades to school because it is really fun to use in
morning tea and lunch,it is not dangerous, and it teaches us responsibility.

Do you want students to get bored because of a lack of laziness?
If students bring beyblades,then they won’t get distracted with each other when they spin it since beyblades
are silent and they can’t disturb other students from learning in class time.
Also in morning tea or lunch,if they are bored they can use it.

Do you think that beyblades are dangerous?
If you think yes,then you are wrong.
Beyblades are harmless toys that can barely attack anyone.
They also never destroy any furniture except for glass and if they do it is either because:
The glass is already damaged or the glass is too light.

Did you think that a student will lose  a beyblade as soon as they brought it to school?
If you think yes you a totally wrong.
If someone loses a beyblade,then they will know they won’t get another one.
So students will do anything to keep it safe.
After they learned that they had to keep beyblades safe, they will learn to keep other important stuff safe.

I now strongly believe that students should bring their own beyblade to school.It is really fun to have in
morning tea and lunch,It is totally not dangerous ,and It teaches us responsibility.

  1. Well done, Room 5 - your personal voice (ie originality) is very apparent in your arguments. Great writing.
