This is a simple and easy review game to prepare students for an upcoming book quiz or test on a book you are studying. Especially useful for tragedies, this game encourages students to connect a character's motivations or tragic flaws with significant plot points, themes, moments of character development, and other literary devices.
This game works great in a variety of contexts--small group or whole class, teacher-led or student-centered. It would be useful to establish group discussion & question answering norms beforehand. Rules are simple and this game can be played with any timeframe you have available.
The format is created for you, but you will have to write your own essential question (which relates to your class focus) as well as characters, motivations, and themes for the game to work for you. The document uses Chinua Achebe's "Things Fall Apart" as an example for you to follow.
