Welcome to Salem! In this highly-engaging history-based Among Us themed escape room, students will be split into teams to investigate major theories into how and why the Salem Witchcraft Trials took place. They must provide sufficient evidence in order to avoid being voted off by the Imposter! This is a great way to engage students, and work on their research skills and reading comprehension! This activity includes several engaging tasks to study and learn about the Salem Witch Trials of...

I have a B.A. in History and an M.A. in World History, as well as an M.A. in Globalization Studies. I have always had a passion for research and World History, and feel that this course will provide a fun introduction into that world using a CSI themed approach to history! I worked as a teaching assistant for two years during my M.A. in early American history and Peace Studies, including the original 13 colonies, the role of women in the colonies, and early American slavery, including the Underground Railroad, into Canada. The course used historical fiction and primary sources heavily to engage students into the world of the Colonial period, and this course is designed with a similar approach using the Crucible! However, no previous reading is required for this experience!
Students will receive a worksheet that they will need to print out and bring to class for their investigation that will be provided ahead of class!
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
- Google Forms
1 hour 15 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
There is no graphic depictions or mature scenes included in this experience! Learners will deal with facts and secondary sources to make their final case.
