Lord of the Flies: Kingdom in the Classroom
Over the past few years, I’ve heard from a lot of different educators who have experimented with Microscope, Kingdom and similar games in the classroom. They were each trying different approaches, but didn’t have a common forum to share what they’d learned.
So when Keenan Kibrick contacted me and we talked about creating a new G+ community for story games in the classroom, I was all for it. He just posted the results of using Kingdom to have students explore Lord of the Flies. Kids role-playing Lord of the Flies? That is about as daring as it gets.
How’d it go? Read the feedback the kids gave. It is spot-on.
I’m really looking forward to seeing the cross-pollination of ideas we can get going between educators. There’s a lot of exciting and unexplored potential for story games in the classroom.
