A New Way to Learn History

Mission US is a multimedia project featuring free interactive adventure games set in different eras of U.S. history. The first game, Mission 1: "For Crown or Colony?," puts the player in the shoes of Nat Wheeler, a 14-year-old printer's apprentice in 1770 Boston. As Nat navigates the city and completes tasks, he encounters a spectrum of people living and working there when tensions mount before the Boston Massacre. Ultimately, the player determines Nat's fate by deciding where his loyalties lie.

Mission 2, “Flight to Freedom” (working title), which focuses on resistance to slavery, will launch in spring of 2011. Other missions, as well as a broadcast special, are planned for release in 2012.

Role Playing


Essential Question(s)
1. Role playing virtually will engage students that reading textbooks will not do. How is this game best used in the classroom? Will you include this in your plan to reach your less motivated or second language learners?

Discussion Question(s)
1. Why are students not interested in learning about history? How much time do you spend teaching history each week? How will you change the way you teach to engage your students with this subject?

Extension and Activities
1. Have your students play the game and discuss what they like and how they may improve the game. Have the class explore another topic in American history, create a game and submit it to the site.
