Playing games teaches us so much!
Social skills such as fair play, patience, and the art of conversation are built along with skills of logic, planning, and strategy building.
Each week Ms. Rachel will start students with a guided ice breaker in order to help build a sense of community.
Then, students will practice leadership and community skills as they play a variety of “table” games including, but not limited to Solo (like Uno), Carcossone, Haiclue, Carcossone, King of Tokyo, and many others.
Weekly games will be chosen by group consensus.
If students do not already have accounts in Board Game Arena (an online gaming site) and Discord (a chat site built for gamers), they will be expected to create free (or premium) accounts.
This club may be listed as an extracurricular activity on high school transcripts.
NOTE: Registration deadline is March 15, 2024.
There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.
great teacher loved her skils and pep
Rachel Bevins is such a lovely teacher, making sure her students feel supported and encouraged during the language-learning process. I’m amazed by her patience every time I listen to part of her lesson, as she is one of those gifted teachers who can keep teens on track while also allowing them to feel validated with the things they want to express.
My daughter (and I) appreciated her grading policies. This was our first high school year, so having study groups outside of normal class hours was new to us, so just plan for your child to be online for those 1-2x per week as well. For my daughter, this was a great time to connect with her classmates and also to make sure she felt on track with what she was learning. It also built in some structure for her to stay on top of homework assignments.
We look forward to Spanish II next year, and would highly recommend this class.
Mrs. Bevins is a wonderful teacher who keeps students interested through interactive live classes and innovative assignments. Both of my daughters took Spanish 2 and had a great year! The work load is very reasonable but rigorous enough, and engages the student in different ways to solidify learning. Students have plenty of practice with listening, speaking, and writing the language. Grading happens in a timely manner and feedback is plentiful. I highly recommend this engaging class!
