Class theme/topics discussed:
How did you pick this theme or topic?
We just wanted to finish the game..
Board Game Life was students’ request. (あまりいい理由とは言えないが・・They told me they wanted to play the board game during the class because Lindsay brought her Japanese friend to the class)
How did you present the material? (handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
Most of them knew the rule of Life. So, it was pretty easy to explain and help each other.
How did students react?
They were so excited that I told them we were going to play Life during the class. ( I was considering if it was ok to play game during the class)
Did they engage with each other and you?
Yes, this time was also they engaged very well.
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Life ( Board game in Japanese Lounge)
Wold you recommend this activity for a future class?
