Unit: The Games We Play

1 Favorites

Unit Description

I have a personal rule, which is that every Friday, no matter where we are, we spend at least half the period playing a fun game. Sometimes they are teacher-led, sometimes the students play in groups. They are always fun, never overly competitive, and they are ALWAYS math-based. I have never had a complaint that they weren't math based, and I have never had a student seriously refuse to play for the entire period. They are always sucked in!


Monopoly: Oakland Resources: 5

Students will understand systemic economic inequities and the concentration of wealth in the context of privatized, capitalized economies. They will contrast this with class equality and/or public ownership. (Yes, this is a pinko-commie game if you want it to be, or it is just a model of why there are kinks in the "American Dream," you take it as far as you like.)
