My name is Jeremy Nelson and I teach high school history, government, and economics. Four years ago I created a massive board game for my world history class that focuses on the Middle Ages. As I have revised The Game (as it has been affectionately titled by my students) I have discovered a passion for this creative outlet and a desire to create more board games. I am in the midst of a final revision of The Game, and have begun the initial stages of expanding my world history curriculum to incorporate board game play with every unit of study we cover. In addition, I am in the middle-planning stages of a microeconomics game that will revolve around multiple economics concepts.
My passion in this is to create deeper, more meaningful learning experiences for my students through the use of cooperative board games. I am really excited to interact with all of you and to learn as much as possible while hopefully contributing something myself.
I will be uploading pics of The Game shortly to give you all an idea of my labor of love.
