Description

Class Experience

Students will learn about WWII infantry tactics by using them in class.
Students will work cooperatively to solve problems presented in class. 
Students will learn about various WWII battles by participating in the reconstruction of the battle during class. 
Students will use critical thinking and problem solving skills in each class. 
As a long-term wargaming enthusiast with a MA in Military Studies (Land Warfare), I am very excited to offer this class. Military History has been a passion of mine since elementary school. I understand the study of Military History, battles, and commanders as a very good way to improve critical thinking and problem-solving. 
No homework assigned. A link to a Google folder with historical reference material (view only) will be provided at a future date. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Assessment will result from how well the student and his teammates achieved the mission objectives in the various scenarios. 
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
In this class the students play the role of a commander of either a squad or a platoon in the European Theater of the Second World War. As such they are using their critical decision making skills to commander other members of their squad to achieve victory in one of many historically based scenarios. The simulated "combat" in this class is on-line (Roll20), there will be nor "gory" descriptions and such since this is simply tactical problem solving in historical scenarios.
