I had a student tell me that he was learning more English by playing a Clue-like game called, Among Us. He asked if I could host a game for the class. The next day, during a workshop, the speaker brought it up as well. I checked it out and it looks promising and would certainly hook the students. Has anyone tried this?

My para shared it with me, but I have yet to try it. I'll try it out and let you know. There are many other games with reading on the screen that help with reading skills. My daughter reads her screen to follow her anime.

I tried Among Us with two of my classes today. In the first class it was a total hit. The kids who had turned in their homework got to play. The rest of the kids double timed it so they could join later. At the end of the game I posted a question in Google classroom asking for a list of vocabulary that I could front load for them. The second class is one that I struggle with anyway and wasn’t as successful. It was a lot of fun and most of the kids were begging to play again. I had see the chat to English and it was great to see everyone interaction and occasionally taking themselves off mute to shout out at someone. There was a lot of smiles and laughter too.... from me as well! Just the classroom camaraderie was enough to make me use it again. How often have we had that this school year? You can only have 4-10 players at a time, so I use both my phone and iPad

My ELs love it and I went to a virtual conference that discussed this. I learned about it from my own daughters...

I am lucky in that I service a low number of EL students so I never have over 10 players but I in your situation with a larger number of students I would maybe have alternate days or if you could virtually pair students ( not sure if that is an option since I have not had to explore it etc...). If I have an app or website where the kids can’t all play, I have options where I switch the kids. One group does a Quizlet practice while the other are playing together then swap eyczz

All- I have some friends who work at Bain and the more I hear about the place, the more I want to eventually work there. The issue is that my credentials aren’t the best. I will have an MBA from a T15 college in about 2 years time, I have 6 years of experience in analytics consulting, mostly at small firms and startups. I guess I wanted to ask the golden question, do I really have a chance at getting into Bain? If so, how should I plan this out?

Deciding on a stroller as a FTM. Read a lot of the comments in this thread. I’ll be having a winter baby in a very snowy place and won’t be doing walking outside until baby is maybe 5 months. I’m not sure I’d need a bassinet. What stroller would you recommend? If Uppababy, is it still worth it even though the Bassinet isn’t really going to be used?

I am struggling with the fact that I have 13 years of HR experience in one capacity or another, along with a bachelors degree and my PHR designation yet companies say “I’m not qualified or they ghost me when I apply for HR openings. I am experienced in all aspects of HR. How are people with little to no experience coming right out of college obtaining higher level roles than I have currently? It makes my passion for the field just go away.
