A companion book to The Judgement Game (Promontory Press 2013) Let’s Play The Game is a work book for schools, reading groups and classes in critical thinking, ESL, legal theory, crime and punishment. The book is a series of games and exercises asking groups to use collaborative methods for decision making. Models of collaboration form the basis for group discussion of the games and problems. Charalee has written the book with the contribution of games from Sarah Hague, a writer of educational resources for children and collaborative concepts from Kathy Porter, mediator and conflict resolution specialist in multi-party collaboration.
Let’s Play the Game is about collaborating with other readers by gathering and sharing ideas about stories in the book. Diversity of opinion, creativity and collaboration by the group is rewarded. It allows groups to devise answers to criminal problems in a manner that responds to the realities of human life. Everyone who collaborates on the answers is a winner.
