A sure fire way to engage your class is to try to turn your concepts into a game! I have been running a Hogwart's House Cup challenge for 8 years and, for many students, it is the highlight of my student's semester. In short, students are sorted into one of the four Hogwart's Houses and they compete against the other houses for the cup! It seems simple, but it's so much more than that!
I'll go through how I set it up, all the tips and tricks that I've learned along the way, and how easy it would be to do it in your class, with your subject, for your grade level. Wingardium Leviosa!!!
