Videogames vs. Television (Jerz’s Literacy Weblog)
He’s done his homework, taken his bath. The six-year-old boy has an hour or so before bedtime. He’s already read a book to his little sister, and plans to listen to a book about elections as bedtime reading.
What to do in the meanwhile? Watch a TV show or play a computer game?
His mom would like to sit in the living room and watch a show.
His dad would like to sit in the den and play a game.
The boy gets out his “Electronic Spider Stompin’ Game” and pits mommy against daddy. Winner takes all.
Daddy wins by one stomped spider.
