Games - capturing students' interests

Wow - I just visited Bud Hunt's blog and saw a student production on Othello. This student has combined his love of games with a class on Shakespeare. Talk about engagement! I am sure more work was done on this project than on a standard essay. Did he learn about Othello - yes. Did he make that learning his own? Unquestionably. Bravo to both the student and to Bud Hunt who provides a classroom where this is not only accepted but celebrated.

  1. You're very kind -- but wouldn't every classroom and teacher be excited about good work done in an interesting way?

    Okay -- maybe not -- but they should be.
