Teaching With Video Games

Video games, like any other medium, can be an incredibly valuable resource for our classrooms. I often incorporate them into my teaching and wanted to make my resources available for other educators. Feel free to subscribe for updates, and let me know if you have recommendations

  • Check out my lessons, sorted by subject, below. For each game you will find a lesson plan, accompanying handouts, and presentation slides. There is potential for overlap between subjects.

  • Click the"classroom" tab above to find posts about new lessons or posts detailing how a lesson went with my students.

  • Check out "The Teacher's Lounge" to share how you have taught with games, especially if you have used one of these lessons!
