My Last Duchess Digital Lock Box Escape Room Game
⚠️You must have cell phones, tablets, or laptops to play this game. Students should work together in small groups. This game requires students to access Google apps with a Google sign-in. Prior to purchase of this game, please make sure your school district does not block the following apps/websites: Google Apps (Sites, Forms, Docs, and Slides) and Codemoji by Mozilla.⚠️
A breakout box kit is not needed for this game.
Engage your students by having them play this digital escape room during or after your study of "My Last Duchess." This is a reinforcement activity. Students will work in small groups to solve puzzles in order to "escape the room." This is a no prep activity--all you need to do is share a link to the game! You can share the link by posting it in your online classroom, by projecting it from your laptop, by writing it on the board, or by printing it out for students. Easy!
The game includes a self-checking Google Form, so you can step back and let students pace themselves. Once students escape, they will get a congratulations message they can show to you to let you know they've finished. For differentiation purposes, I've included a teacher guide with visuals and hints to help you coach struggling students.
This game should take average high school students about 40 minutes to play--you can adjust the time if needed. Students will review several different topics related to "My Last Duchess": literary terms, the Duke's character traits, the Duke's purpose, and the poem's structure and sequence. They will also take a closer look at Robert Browning's life.
This escape room incorporates a wide range of multimedia resources, including websites, images, Google Docs, Google Slides with movable pieces, a Google Site, a Google Form, and an interactive encrypted puzzle. I've incorporated emojis and some visual puzzles as well to really grab the attention of some of the more reluctant learners.
Get them all!
