Transform the obligatory beginning-of-the-year info-dump of your classroom policies and syllabus with this fun, engaging, competitive game! Working in teams, students will solve puzzles to reveal keywords like “Quizzes,” “Tardy,” and “Grades” as a jumping-off point for you to go over your class expectations at the beginning of the term. This game will help students get to know one another, begin the year with problem solving and word consciousness, and guide active investigation of your syllabus.
This 7-page document includes instructions, with pictures and videos, answer key, gameboard, as well as instructions for customizing the game to fit every syllabus. This particular Game Board leans toward an English Language Arts class, but could be easily adapted for any subject. This game could be used for middle, high school, or even higher education classes if you’re one of those Fun Professors!
