Minecraft is a game where creativity and divergent thinking is celebrated through architecture and creation, and Suffield students have taken advantage of this opportunity right in the classroom. We have begun to outline and construct the Tabard Inn, a place in which serval characters from Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales entertain, inform, and share their stories. As our project progresses, we plan on using monuments from Beowulf, such as Heorot the mead hall, or even pulling inspiration from Shakespeare with the Globe Theater.

Please comment below and provide us constructive feedback. Annotate links that we might explore for more support. While our group of students know about the game, we are exploring more creative ways to incorporate our “disciplinary” goals from our study of British literature. We are using the Norton Anthology of English literature: https://wwnorton.com/books/9780393603118
