Do you want to get ahead in history class by playing videos games with friends? At Total Immersion, you will explore, analyze, and inhabit significant events in both Roman and Greek history through primary sources, documentary films, and creative projects. You will step into the shoes of famous statesman and orators and debate possible courses of action, enjoy the music of ancient societies, and walk in the footsteps of the great strategists of history, honing your tactical thinking in the process.
Using the strategy game Rome 2, we will simulate the conquests of antiquity and their vast impacts on the course of history, as well as play exciting multiplayer battles against one another.
