Pub. Date:
Hutchison (education, Brock U.) describes some 100 video game-related lessons, activities, and class projects that teachers can use to support classroom learning. The activities are appropriate for students in grades 4-12 and deal with a wide range of subjects, including language arts, mathematics, science, geography, music, and business. For example, in one lesson, students write a "choose your own adventure story" that could be adapted into a video game. In another, they conduct a statistical analysis of the numbers (high score, playing time, and so on) generated by a video game. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
