Want to bring history to life in your classroom? Want your students to experience history? This session will walk you through a series of simulations that you can run to explore the colony of Acadian and the Acadian Deportation. Your students will be actively engaged in their learning and WANT to know more! They will have opportunities to put themselves into history and become the characters that before they merely read about! Lots of humanities cross curricular opportunities! You will walk away with the complete simulation packages, tasks and assessment for multiple simulations that connect together to teach not only the academic impact but also the emotional and cultural impact of this cultural genocide in our history.
