Tactical Games

The Tactical Games model uses student interest in the game structure to promote skill development and tactical knowledge needed for competent game performance.  In this model, the teacher plans a sequence of learning tasks that have a game-like structure to develop students’ skills and tactics, leading to modified or full versions of the game.  These game-like tasks and modified games are called game forms.  The model emphasizes the development of tactical knowledge that facilitates skill applications in smaller versions of the game, so that students can apply that learning in the full version when the time comes.  In a sense, students are always “playing the game,” as they work on essential skills and tactics in a developmentally appropriate sequence.
