Local Teacher Shares ‘Journey Home’ Game

As part of a Spring 2018 Binghamton University Elementary Education Curriculum Development course, Dr. Jenny Gordon assigned graduate students to craft a board game for use in a classroom. Then-student Alisha Jermayne Merrill created ‘Journey Home’, an immersive Social Studies game for grades 3-5 that focuses on Native American cultures. Ms. Merrill drew from her own experiences and culture to develop this game. She is now teaching with the Johnson City School District in Johnson City, NY.
