Diplomacy Classroom: How to Teach History through Diplomacy Simulations

August 17, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

WebEmail DC Teaching Sims

In this Diplomacy Classroom, NMAD debuted three Historical Diplomacy Simulations! These simulations engage participants in the art and practice of diplomacy while also introducing the contributions of the State Department and U.S. diplomats in the context of a historical event.

NMAD Education Program Specialist Lauren Fischer introduced the basics of diplomacy simulations while Education Analyst Elizabeth Gearhart gave an overview of each Historical Diplomacy Simulation.

We encourage you to explore the free, new materials and hope they will make a great addition to your school year plans!
