Serious learning can be seriously FUN! For some, school feels like a chore: boring, monotonous, necessary. But what if school were fun – for you and your students?

Yes! School can be simultaneously fun and educational. In fact, as Quinn Rollins explains in Play Like a PIRATE, when your class is engaging and entertaining, students are more likely to remember what they’ve learned.Invite kids to use their imaginations and help them create meaningful connections with your content by making play part of the learning experience. Play Like a Pirate shows you how!
