East Wake High Media Moment


Ms. Starbird's Fun and Engaging Lesson (Life-Size Chess Board)

Students in Honors English 2 have been reading The Joy Luck Club, in which one of the narrators (Waverly Jong) is a chess champion and consistently uses chess as a metaphor for her relationship with her mother (Lindo Jong). To illustrate this metaphor, students played life-size chess in which each student was assigned a chess piece and given instructions for how they could move. But to move, students had to answer a review question about the chapter. In the end, students debriefed how it felt to be a pawn (like Waverly) or a queen (like Lindo).
