Today was our much anticipated game day in my Politics of Western Democracies class! My students surprised me with a Skee Ball extravaganza they’d constructed out of cardboard and spray painted with unicorns! I was so touched that they indulged my unicorn obsession! But my favorite part of the game was without a doubt the way they ironically called their teams “Team Us” and “Team Them.” This makes me think people actually pay attention in my civil war lectures and such. So yes, it was a great day! I still can’t believe how thoughtful and fun the game was! The students always design it themselves and they constantly outdo one another.
