Using popular and effective video games, students will learn how to think critically while working in a group. With a strong emphasis on communication, gaining leadership skills and working well under pressure, there will be plenty of valuable skills that will be attained in one of the fastest growing sports the world has to offer.
We will primarily use League of Legends and StarCraft 2, but will occasionally play other games, and will focus entirely on cooperative gameplay during this time. As StarCraft 2 is a “Rated T for Teen” game, parents will need to give permission for middle school students to participate.
No previous knowledge of games is required. We will assume everyone is new to the game and will instruct as such.
