We will review as a class what our project will entail.

1. Brainstorm about video/computer games. What are they for? Can they be educational?
2. Show them a demonstration of a game using sample. Have students write down questions as we’re playing the game as a class.
3. Show students group assignments. Students group and ask/answer each others’ questions. Brainstorm ideas for their games.
4. As a class, review Roles and Responsibilities sheet. Allow students to self-designate roles and then talk about peer review/assessment.
4. Last 10 minutes of class, as a whole class students will ask more questions to me and tell class about their ideas.
