Video: WW HistoryQuest Fellowship
The Woodrow Wilson HistoryQuest Fellowship, in partnership with the Institute of Play, helps middle- and high school U.S. history teachers learn how to apply game design principles to foster inquiry-based learning. Fellows learn to tie games to the curriculum, integrate them into the classroom, create their own games, and assess learning outcomes. While the weeklong summer institute focuses on teaching one historical period, the principles and approaches are transferable and could readily be shared with colleagues teaching other historical periods, or even different disciplines.
The WW HistoryQuest Fellowship is offered to history teachers in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York City, and Pennsylvania. See more about the impact of the program in the video above.
