Chrono Cards: American Revolution

Prototype development of two complementary card games and an educational website to engage middle school students in learning about the roots of the American Revolution.

The Game Innovation Lab at the University of Southern California requests support for the Chrono Cards: American Revolution project, a set of digital and physical card games that utilizes digital media to guide middle school students in their demonstration of historical knowledge and practice of historical thinking skills. The historical content of the games covers the causes and early events of the American Revolution. Accompanying the games are a series of curricular supports that help teachers contextualize the games and use them most effectively in a classroom environment. This prototype builds on previous work done in partnership with Microsoft Research, which resulted in a proof-of-concept for the games, Fact Fuse and Chrono Scouts.
