Wow! Even if you don’t teach history you will want to see this fabulous post at History Tech about using Medal of Honor and other games to teach social studies. Glenn Wiebe’s lesson idea would not only boost comprehension for many learners, but hook those who may be typically disengaged from social studies lessons. I also love that families could follow up on home by sharing movies and memories; this would be particularly helpful for those learners with disabilities who may initially struggle with such complex content.
