The dickhead game is harder than one thinks...
Have you tried it??

An original approach to punctuation as well....

However I fail to see how the game teaches one where to put the punctuation marks???

Yes, I was wondering the same about the punctuation game. It certainly got them working together but I could not understand why it was called the punctuation game. Any other theme would have fitted the bill.

I found the program very intersting and it really does show the best ways to work in a classroom because i honestly have fallen to sleep in a lesson before! I think it was not only because they made the students more active but because it gave a variation from the norm.

It is interesting to read the kids reports after the series.
They only give four so maybe only four were changed by the course :P
