This course will allow students to develop a military, research military tactics, and engage in virtual battles using the tactics they learn in class.

Class Experience

US Grade 5 - 8
Students will learn about different military tactics in a fun, hands on, and engaging format.  
The instructor of this lesson has a degree in history, spent years working at a World War II submarine museum, and is committed to educating learners through historic contextualization and discussion.  While learners will be creating their own militaries, the military strategies discussed in this course have been used by armies all around the world.  
Homework Offered
Students will want to take some time studying military tactics before the class tournament in week two. I would estimate that the military tactic study will take learners roughly 1 hour.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
