Hi Everyone,
I teach developmental math and English at a community college in Colorado,
and I need to be able to communicate with my students in "game talk."
Some of them are very skilled, but I'm a novice.

I'm glad to see such a variety of interests in the group. This should be an
interesting (and challenging!) course.

Welcome, Ellenh9! It's so interesting to me that you reference a need to be able to speak "game talk." Do you have any examples?

Just this morning I wrote something about working the system, and thought that probably these days, it might make more sense to talk about gaming the system. But I don't think the two are quite the same!

Do you see using this "game talk" as a way to motivate your students or relate to your students? We're going a bit slower this week, but next week we do have a vocabulary list so you can try some new words on your students this summer.
