I am currently pursuing a teaching certificate, and recently completed an assignment called a "text set." For this project I was to select a topic and compile a set of children's literature which related to, or contained, that topic. In addition, I needed to address how this set would fit into the larger curriculum.
Well, I enthusiastically chose board games!
I have uploaded my paper at drop.io in case anyone else is generally interested, or in case other teachers will find a use for it.
There are a few components: the first is the written response portion. BGGers will only find the first half of this part interesting since that is the part that addresses board games in literature and the classroom. The second half of this part is about selecting quality literature for the classroom. You may find the second half boring if you aren't interested in that kind of stuff.
Then, there is an annotated list of children's literature about or containing board games followed by a few board games I'd like to use in the classroom.
I fully plan to use this in my future classroom, so it is a living document. If anyone has more suggestions of children's literature please let me know! I'm not as interested in board game suggestions since there are numerous threads here about that subject.
Edit: Drop has expired. Educators message me if you have any interest.

Like you, I've plumped for Board Games for my latest assignment (Librarianship: Collection management) and would be really interested to read a copy of your paper, as it sounds as though it would be a valuable addition to my proposed collection of board games and related literature.
Many thanks in advance
