"They'd Better Hope for a Lot of Free Parking:" Using "Monopoly" to Teach about Classical Liberalism, Marginalization, and Restorative Justice
Duerringer, Christopher Michael
Communication Teacher, v27 n1 p11-15 2013
The activity outlined here, using the "Monopoly" board game, is designed to illustrate the way that classical liberalism fails to provide justice for societies marked by historical and ongoing oppression. Taking up roles in a game that simulates some of the conditions of late capitalism can help students begin to understand how economic marginalization occurs and how it may be addressed. Through this activity, students in such courses as critical ethnography and rhetorical criticism will examine the limits of classical liberalism, expand their understandings of marginality and justice, and interrogate colorblind communication.
