If you want to motivate and engage students with different starting points Educational Live Action Role Play (Edu-Larp) can be a way. The idea of a common goal provides a focus and a driving force that brings subject knowledge and social skills into play.
Through a narrative frame it promotes differentiated teaching and many forms of knowledge. The Edu Larp can take many forms and move within many genres. The Edu-Larp can last anywhere between just an hour and several weeks.
Interdisciplinary or through individual subjects a simulation of events and activities is created. In Edu Larp subject knowledge is a fundamental key element. Subject knowledge moves form being the main focus to being a means to achieve a shared and meaningful goal.

The curriculum comes into play and is made relevant through and immersive experience. The role makes it easier to handle failure as it is the role that fails, not you as a person.
