Do Classroom Games Improve Motivation and Learning?
Nemerow, Laurence G.
Teaching and Change, v3 n4 p356-66 Sum 1996
A high school biology teacher studied the use of both competitive and noncompetitive games in classroom learning. Students were surveyed to find out how they felt about the games and what they learned from them. Results indicated that games helped students improve self-esteem, peer relationships, and learning. Competition provided motivation but also pressure. (SM)
