How I Use It
I was desperate to find something to support Colonial History with my self-contained Tier 3 Intervention class (yeah, I know, right?). I stumbled across the Mission US games and gave them a shot. They dug it. I didn't use all of the supplementary materials (available as downloads), but next time I would like to.
This is great as a supplement. It's a game, so of course the kids are going to look for shortcuts and for ways to "game" it by skipping the text and the like. But if you use all of the included materials and really dive into it, it seems like those pitfalls could be addressed.
