Escalation, De-escalation and Compromise! Use role-play simulations and games to teach empathy and decision making through the lens of historical events.

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Participants will engage in a role play simulating the Yalta Conference or The French Revolution (I will make both lessons available to download). The simulation activity will help you to convey to your students how to understand intense bargaining that happens in critical moments in history, settle controversies by negotiations, analyze events and outcomes from the perspectives of historical roles, appreciate the difficulty of assuming an unpopular position and gain empathy for minority/majority opinions. In addition to making history matter through taking on the roles of the individuals that were part of these parts of history. In addition to role playing, the participants will be collaborating, and working with primary source analysis.
