[b]Quiet! Scrabble game in progress
Ben Loiterstein is a very famous man. He’s a teacher of English but also a Scrabble world champion. Ben believes that Scrabble belongs in the classroom. He says, «I use Scrabble in class all the time. It is a thrilling experience for the kids. They learn arithmetic, language, dictionary skills and team work. Scrabble teaches them everything in a really fun way.»
Other teachers seem to agree with him that Scrabble is a way for young people to have fun and learn at the same time. They think teenagers, who seldom open a dictionary, rarely go to the library and usually spend most of their time surfing the Internet, find playing Scrabble interesting. One of them says, «It’s the only time I ever see my students fight over a dictionary, or even open one!»
Ben visits classrooms across the country to help other teachers understand that Scrabble is an educational tool, a tool for improving strategic thinking and bringing people together.[/b]
