Mission U.S. An Interactive Way to Learn History

Educators, we hope you’ll join us for a Virtual Professional Learning Series about Mission US Interactive simulations for remote learning with a special preview of the new Mission US simulation, “Prisoner in My Homeland,” which focuses on the experience of a Japanese American teenage boy who must make difficult choices amid the chaos and terror of incarceration during WWII.

As social studies teachers look for immediate solutions to engage students in remote learning, Mission US â€“ an award-winning series of free, interactive, standards-aligned history games – delivers exciting learning opportunities. This edWebinar will unpack strategies for using interactive role-playing games during this time of remote learning and also discuss how games like Mission US (mission-us.org) can support English Language Learners and struggling readers. Participants will learn how to integrate the games into assignments and use the program’s wealth of teaching resources, including document-based activities, writing prompts, and independent student research, to immerse students in the drama and decisions that shaped U.S. history. Presenters will share examples of how to blend gameplay with extension activities to illustrate how teachers can immediately utilize the content with their students.

As a bonus, attendees will also get a preview of the new Mission US simulation, “Prisoner in My Homeland,” which focuses on the experience of a Japanese American teenage boy who must make difficult choices amid the chaos and terror of incarceration during WWII.
