Mission C: Campaigns and Battles
In this final stage of the game-based unit, students take the role of an advisor to either President Davis, or President Lincoln. They will be given a series of military, economic and political problems to deal with. Their first objective is to choose the course of action which they think their President took in real life (his ‘approval rating’ of you will then stay high). Their second objective is to correctly answer the factual questions they are given as the game proceeds (your ‘factual knowledge’ score will then stay high). As they proceed through the simulation, students complete the worksheet. At the end of the game there will be follow-up tasks. Students can play as a Confederate, a Unionist, or even against another player!
