At first, the teens were skeptical because Scrabble involves spelling and dictionaries, but soon they were caught up in the game and having fun. We had four teams with cardboard walls to protect from prying eyes. We only had one dictionary, but people used their phones as well. I would recommend providing a dictionary per team, if possible. I would also recommend making sure that you review Scrabble rules before you play, as they will be tested. Calculating scores can be pretty challenging, so it would be helpful to find a math wiz armed with a calculator for this job. We played without using diagonals or acronyms, but backwards words were acceptable. It’s a great, secret learning game!
