General
How I Use It
I liked TeacherGaming because it gives kids some real world ways to solve problems through a game. Kids get to be the decision makers. I wish that there had been more social & emotional storylines, though. I think that this would be fun for kids to use as a fast finisher or individual thing - some games were ok for lower-performing students, but some were a bit difficult.
My Take
I initially looked at it and thought I'd try whole-group with this one, but I actually think it's better as a fast finisher when kids have 20-25 minutes ... most of my students were engaged, but I do wish that there had been more variance in each game.
