This year, I’m making my first visit to the National Council for the Social Studies conference.
On Saturday, I’m presenting some materials to attendees around a group of lessons I have built around a simulation activity to help kids learn about Ancient Rome. It’s one of my favorite topics, but it doesn’t sell itself, honestly. I have been there – when I didn’t know anything about Rome, I didn’t want to know anything about Rome. Just learning a little bit about it made me feel the weight of all of the things I didn’t know.
Sometimes, games and challenges to play a role can help. This group of assignments is designed around that idea. You can have a look here.
I’m looking for feedback. Please feel free to email me or leave me comments!
