Yesterday, I played Pictionary with my students as a means of vocabulary review. The incentive for them to do well was that the winning team would receive a “Golden Ticket” (late pass/extra credit) as a prize. My class of 26 freshmen and sophomores decided to work together instead of against each other to ensure that each and every person in that room would receive a Golden Ticket AND have fun at the same time. All the while, their teacher was incredibly moved by their solidarity, concern for each others’ welfare, and sense of joy. I, too, enjoyed that hour, and it reminded me of why HMGGMH.
