Generating student interest in academics has always been a challenge, and the advent of electronic entertainment has not made this challenge any easier. However, by incorporating the engaging elements of these electronic systems into traditional teaching methods, educators could better attract their students to academic content. Using two sets of surveys, we developed a prototype intervention to gauge student interest in the use of one such element, narrative, to teach middle school level geometry.
