These are the documents I have for my own instruction. You will most likely need to change some things for your own gamified lessons. There are 2 Word documents. One is the rule booklet, which also outlines how to level up and earn "power-ups".

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My previous experience was in Early Childhood Education, as an Infant Room (and later, Toddler Room) teacher. I was, for 2 years, a Math Corps Enrichment Tutor for 4th and 5th grade. I also did intervention for other grades as necessary. I am an after-school and evening club leader as well. I run the Origami Club, Doodle Club, and Crazy 8s (Math) Club at Greenvale Park Elementary School in Northfield, MN. I am currently the media center educational assistant at Greenvale Park.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I define my teaching style as "gamified". While it is not possible to change the curriculum and lesson plans provided, it was possible to change how we approached it. Turning intervention into something resembling a game (complete with levels, badges, quests, and XP points) helped my students get more motivated to do their best.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I tried Architecture (but I don't like to make my drawings so precise). I tried Computer Science (and was pretty good, but the school environment discouraged people from excelling). I have an AAS in Early Childhood Education, specializing in Child Development, from Rasmussen College. I am currently an Elementary Education (and Psychology) student at Bemidji State University.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I'm a late bloomer. I am "over the hill" and I am just now realizing I want to go back to school to become a grade school teacher. I am, however, a lifelong learner; I believe firmly that no one is too old to learn new things, and that a person keeps on learning until they stop breathing. I love art and math. I love when they come together very nicely.
