Can digital games engage students while helping them develop their reading comprehension skills? Join us and guests Kathy Yu Burek and Anne Richards for a look at how Classroom, Inc.’s The Sports Network 2 (available on GameUp) does just that. Kathy and Anne will demo the game, in which students take on the role of Managing Director at a sports media company, and discuss strategies for implementation. You’ll see how the game assesses the Common Core State Standards in Reading and addresses critical thinking and career readiness skills.
