‘Activate’ Creativity with Board Game Contest

English Language Fellow Jennifer Miller recently led a 3-hour Access Program at the Jefferson Center in Mandalay, Burma. Students participating worked in small groups to design and produce their own board games with clearly written instructions and rules. Each group based their board game on a topic of their choice and final games were submitted to American English’s 3rd Annual Create Your Own Board Game competition.

The activity was designed to introduce students to creative collaboration while using open-ended questions and a shared goal to promote the authentic development of English communication skills. The games they created can now be used outside the classroom with family and friends.

Winning submissions from the board game contest can be found, and downloaded, on the American English website.
