Band geeks to computer nerds, dodge ball to detention. They’re all parts of “High School!! The Game of Surviving Public Education," the creation of a USF Honors College professor and his friends. University Beat on WUSF TV has a look at the game and the message behind it.
A USF Honors College professor and his friends have created a board game that’s partly a trip down memory lane, part life lesson. “High School!! The Game of Surviving Public Education” allows players to relive the good and bad of high school as a bully, nerd, geek or jock. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 has a preview.
USF Honors College visiting professor Philip Bishop and USF English graduate teaching assistant Alan Shaw explain the rules of "High School! The Game of Surviving Public Education."
