Abstract
This project team is developing a prototype of The American War: Featuring Valley Sim, an e-textbook for college students that will integrate thematic content and role-playing, games, and simulations. The product will allow students to recreate and critique arguments and events during the civil war from the perspective of those who were alive during that period. The games will supplement classroom learning and support student outcomes in history. Pilot research in Phase I will seek to demonstrate that the software prototype functions as planned, the product can be used within the classroom, and students are engaged by the prototype.
