Sarah hosts a seminar on Tabletop Games and Literacy. The skills people associate with Literacy are actually found in all subject areas, but need to be integrated by content teachers. The Tabletop Game Unit, regardless of being a Literacy focused Unit, is applicable to other subject areas with fine tuning and understanding outcomes.

Additionally, she runs a Tabletop Game Club that focuses on engaging with the larger gaming community, not just getting together and playing board games. We have a structured club divided into learning and then application, but the developing of a love for the world of tabletop gaming is always at the heart.
