Product Description
This is a board game to introduce students to the world of Jane Austen. I use this game as a way to pre-load background information about Austen’s world in to students’ brains before our class studies an Austen novel or my students begin work on literature circles with their selected Austen novel. Students play a marriage game and answer morality and intelligence questions and draw luck cards as well. Students learn to question character motivation based on their own motivations in answering morality questions in ways that they come to realize will win them points. By engaging in game play, students learn to employ game theory to understand characters and to hone their character analysis skills for greater analytical reading. I use this with my AP English Literature students before we begin Austen literature circles; a unit project that I also have for sale.
This was also part of my session at the 2011 NCTE Annual Convention in Chicago. You can see the Prezi that accompanied it at:
