This is a complete lesson plan and resources for playing oppression monopoly in your high school Études Sociales classroom. It is a great way to get students to understand inequality in an engaging way. I originally found the idea on Pinterest, then went and did the work of turning everything into French.
Basically, students play Monopoly according to a modified set of rules. For example, one player gets to move double the amount that they roll each time, another player has to go to jail for rolling higher than a 7, etc. Halfway through the period, you return to normal Monopoly rules without starting the game over. Students continue playing now that things are "equal," and they soon find out that even when everyone is playing by the same rules, the effects of the past are very difficult to overcome.
I have included a detailed lesson plan written in French (it is a Word doc so you can easily edit the grade, subject, etc.), along with a copy of the rules to give to the students, and discussion questions to ask at the end.
