This 3-day symposium will explore the utility of using games and game-creation to teach historical concepts and thinking skills. A different type of game will be discussed on each day of the symposium. While the content will be grade level specific, the learning strategies will be applicable across grade levels. Participants will leave with new paper-based games and a process to engage students in their own game-creation. Teachers are encouraged to register for more than one day.

REGISTRATIN FOR THIS PROGRAM IS NOW CLOSED.

Following the program, we will post materials to our Global History page.
