“Some students were wealthy and others poor, and they said they weren’t aware of the important issue of wealth equity in the world. Students realized that as they played, not all of them got out of the slums of Brazil, or made a million dollars, while others seemed to keep amassing wealth!
“These games are valuable to students because they are thrust into someone else’s shoes and can take a walk in them for a while.
“The students always comment on the fact that they didn’t know that people around the world have their own sets of problems; farmers, bankers and middle class—all have unique obstacles that they need to face and try to overcome.
“The kids also like the mini vocabulary lists! These really give a level of authenticity to the game.
“Hartland High School students and World Language teachers find these games entertaining, informational and interesting!”
