How I Use It

As mentioned above I found using this program as a supplement to having students learning about slavery very beneficial.

Students get to experience the life of a slave which they might not be able to connect to by just reading about it.

My Take

Having previously used Mission US: For Crown and Country in the classroom, I was quite excited when they released this latest version.

I find by having students playing a character in the game they really learn how decisions they make as a slave have consequences related to their actions.

The supplemental teacher and classroom materials further enhance student learning.
