Sardone, Nancy B.; Devlin-Scherer, Roberta
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v89 n6 p215-222 2016
Gaming, in its many forms, is becoming a more active force in classrooms. To prepare preservice candidates for this trend, one teacher education program asked candidates (n = 60) to develop games in varied curricular fields tied to curriculum standards. This article describes the development of a model game, assignment requirements, provides a content review of eight games (geography and novels), their features, and highlights benefits and lessons learned from this experience.
