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.
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.
No supplies are required for this course.
No assessment is administered, but there will be a winner of the tournament.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Learners will be developing their own military force for class. Military tactics and casualty numbers will be discussed in class.
Military tactics will be pulled from "The Art of War" by Sun Tzu. Historical militaries, weapons, and military leaders (for drafting into learner created militaries) will be pulled from various peer reviewed sources, including books and articles from historical journals and magazines.
