Digital Escape Game - Black History Month

Digital Escape Game - Black History Month

Celebrate Black History Month by having your students play this fun game. The local museum is hosting an exhibit but the prize item is locked up tight in a box! Without the codes to unlock it, the museum can’t put it on display. Help them out by finding the 5 codes that will unlock the box and save the day. This item will have students learning about 5 prominent African-Americans: Martin Luther King, Jr. Shirley Chisholm Guion S. Bluford, Jr. Ruby Bridges Barack Obama You will need internet access to do this activity - students can work in teams if you don’t have enough devices for an entire class. To find the codes students will be using video, primary sources and articles written about the subjects. Includes answer key with hints in case your students get stuck. Note about digital breakouts, as they are new to the educational scene and can be confusing for those who have never done an ‘escape the room’ type game: The first clue will always be the most difficult for them. Once they figure that out, the others will be easier because they will get the idea of how things work. They will mouse over the images, looking for the hand or arrow that lets them know that it’s a link. Once they open the link, they’ll want to read the page, watch the video, etc. The clues are hidden in there. The tricky part is that they don’t know which clue is on which page - they have to work together, think about what they’re looking for, and think about what they’ve learned on each page. They know that they need certain things to open the locks - but they can’t be sure if they’ve got it until they try it. If they try a word or a number and it doesn’t work, they can keep trying until they figure out what it’s supposed to be. For sure it is a challenging activity - the first time I did one, my students were pretty confused. I guided them to opening the first clue but then told them they’d have to figure out what exactly they were looking for. Most of them did end up solving the puzzle, but a few groups were one clue short of solving it. Since you have the answers, you can guide your students if they need it. I had some groups who would never get the clue if I didn’t nudge them in the right direction. But I also had some who didn’t want any help and relished the challenge. It’s not really a question/answer sort of thing since that would be just a scavenger hunt or research project. They have to discuss what they think might be the most important things on each page and go from there.

Gender equality: year of the woman

Gender equality: year of the woman

It’s been 100 years since some women got the vote in the UK. This year, hundreds of famous entertainers have launched a campaign against the harassment of women. The campaign, called ‘Time’s Up’, is a reminder that women are still sometimes mistreated simply because they are female. This 6-session scheme of work explores barriers that women face both in and out of the workplace and asks questions which encourage all genders to consider how they and society are affected by this issue. There is also an additional optional session covering sexual harassment. Use these fully-planned, interactive and multi-media resources to develop your student’s critical thinking and literacy skills and to embed cognitively challenging conversations in your classrooms.

Stasiland - Cold and Stark - Ezine article on Hohenschonhausen Prison

Stasiland - Cold and Stark - Ezine article on Hohenschonhausen Prison

Hohenschonhausen Prison in East Berlin was a secret prison where dissidents were held, interrogated and tortured by the Stasi. This ezine article contains external photographs of the prison, photographs of the surveillance, interrogation and holding facilities. I have included extracts from Anna Funder’s Stasiland in which the author is taken on a tour of these rooms. The activities focus on the role of the facility in enforcing Stasi control over the German Democratic Republic. The resource can be used as part of a unit of work on the non-fiction text, Stasiland, as part of a unit on the Cold War, or as part of a unit on human rights.
