This paper describes a new teaching approach based on gamification with the following goals: to promote the learning of Spanish Literature to non-motivated third-year high school students and to provide teachers with an effective method based on game design techniques to teach Literature. A complete gamification experience has been developed to provide the most effective gamified learning experience able to awake the interest of the students in Literature, while assuring the knowledge retention of the concepts in higher grades. The experience was validated among a group of 20 students of 14-15 years-old with very interesting and promising conclusions: students’ and teacher’s motivation were increasing along the experience and the students’ final marks on the subject were 20% better that the same subject the year before.
