This course will immerse students in the United States Revolutionary War
(1700-1790). Students will meet or become one of the fascinating characters
of this period or a fictional character living in the U.S. Colonial Period.
Take on the role of General George Washington, Martha Washington, Benjamin
Franklin, John Hancock, Paul Revere, a fictional settler, Mary Musgrove or
any number of historic figures as the class discusses and re-enacts
historic events such as the Boston Tea Party, and signing of the
Declaration of Independence.
Based on research conducted into the events taking place during the
Colonial Period, students will create and participate in an immersive
role-playing experience. The experience will introduce how a virtual world
can create community and teach students an innovative way to serve as
leaders in portraying knowledge, history and documents in creative and
educational ways using virtual world technologies.
Students from previous classes built all the buildings and constructed the
roleplay activities that will take place. We need more students for the
course to run, so hope you will sign up.
