Reflection: Board Game Project: Introduction and Planning - Section 4: Mini-Lecture: Board Game Directions


I wrote this project with the assistance of Engineering Design/Architecture teacher, and this year, a large number of my students are enrolled in various classes offered through our school's Engineering Technology/Woodshop program. As the Engineering Design/Architecture teacher stresses to these same students the importance of communicating their ideas completely, I am addressing the importance of the design process. We both hope that eventually, we are able to create a true cross-curricular seminar/project that students can get dual credit in, but that is down the road (we also co-wrote a lesson on architecture history and the novel, "The Devil in the White City").
