How I Use It
I was unable to use this product after purchasing it with school funds. I wanted to familiarize myself with it before use in a guidance lesson... the word "dammit" within the first few minutes of the game was very disappointing. SO GLAD I always review curriculum and online material before using in the classroom. Public Education money wasted. Morally and ethically I cannot share this with my 6th graders.
My Take
Disappointing. The strong language to express the character's emotion does not make this appropriate for children in the school setting. This would be a great program for teaching character education and I believe my students would really relate to it since they love gaming. However, morally and ethically I cannot share this with my 6th graders.
