More About Literary Battleship:
This download contains a comprehensive instruction manual and fully customizeable overhead projection slides on how to adapt Battleship for the needs of your high school classroom when studying ANY work of literature or non-fiction from the harshest realms of Realism (think Jack London, Kate Chopin, and Steven Crane) to the loftiest dreams of the Romantics (a la Emerson, Thoreau, and Hawthorne).
This resource likewise includes a detailed walk-through of how to scaffold the activity to fit the unique needs of your classroom. Includes tips on how to adapt it for as short of a timeframe as a daily warm-up, as well as advanced gameplay suggestions on how to play a larger game of teacher-versus-classroom Literary Battleship as an all-out end-of-unit review.
More About Monopoly
Use the Monopoly resource in either of two ways:
1. Printed out as a fully customized bulletin board to make your current unit look like one giant game of Monopoly. With just a few clicks, it's an outstanding plug-and-play resource for teachers with extra wall space looking for fresh ideas for a year-long visual pacing guide bulletin board that can help students keep tabs on how units fit together (great for adding new "properties" to the board as your classes make their way through the school year). You might even consider using each of the four sides to the board to correspond to the overarching essential question(s) for each of your four quarters of instruction!
2. As a one day stand-alone Google Slides activity for an in-class review game Jeopardy! Alternative. Fill with your unit content and project the complete game board onto the overhead projector. Have students work in teams to make their way around the board by rolling dice and answering questions based on the squares where they land (instead of buying properties). Weight harder questions to correspond with the more valuable properties, and give prizes for high scores or for whoever can get around the board the greatest number of times!
Simple, student-centered, and INFINITELY re-usable -- this is a fantastic teaching tool mixing skill, luck, and strategy to get students excited, engaged, and genuinely interested in your course material, and you can re-visit it again and again throughout your school year with tremendous results.
