Wordplay Day

Posted: September 24, 2018 in Teaching

Scrabble Retro Edition

Later this morning, the students in my 8 o’clock class will tear the plastic from these retro-edition Scrabble sets and begin Wordplay Day, a new feature in my classes this semester. Once every two weeks, the students will play Scrabble in teams of two to foster collaboration, along with boosting their word power and creative problem-solving skills. Let the games (and the learning) begin!

    Great idea. Used to love Scrabble. Now my writing has to take its place.

      Thanks, Lenore. I can report that the first two Wordplay Days, September 24 and 25, were a success. When you have to remind students that it’s time to leave class, you know you’re onto something.
