The Ivanhoe assignment was one of the best assignments I have had at Central. I learned just as much about the social and creative climate of the Victorian age as I did in Brit Lit. That is not to say that I had a bad class, it is just that I was so interested in the assignment that I wanted to learn more. I have “preached” Ivanhoe to two good friends that are English teachers at a local high school and they are looking into implementing it in their classroom next year. (Barring any administrative objections) I would like to see this “game” used at a younger age, to start the process of children thinking creatively aboout fiction.
