MISSION US is recruiting 10 Educators for Research Efforts

As part of an evaluation of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting’s American History and Civics Initiative, the Mission US project is recruiting 10 teachers from Grades 6–9 to use the MISSION US: For Crown or Colony? digital game and activities for 3–4 consecutive days in their classes between now and February 28, 2011.

Participating teachers will have the game and materials they need to teach about the Boston Massacre and political tensions that led to the American Revolution. They can be used before, during, or after a unit on the Revolution (for example as, assessment). Participating teachers must have access to two different groups of students. One group will use the MISSION US game and one will not. Teachers who use the game with students and submit all materials will receive a $250.00 stipend.


If you are interested, please contact with your first and last name, grade level taught, school name, number of students, district name, school mailing address and best contact phone number so we can provide you with additional information.
