“The Waiting Game” Simulates The Challenges Facing Someone Seeking Asylum In The U.S.

Choose Your Own Adventure games often have to be careful balancing respecting the experiences of those who are being simulated and portraying it sensitively with a social conscious.

The Waiting Game, produced by ProPublica, works hard at doing the latter in simulating the experience faced by those seeking asylum in the United States.

I’m adding it to The Best Places To Read & Write “Choose Your Own Adventure” Stories  and to The Best Sites For Learning About World Refugee Day.

“Be George Washington” In This New Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Activity

Be George Washington: It’s Your Turn To Lead is a new online choose-your-own-adventure game from Mount Vernon.

Players can choose various well-know scenarios where Washington had to deal with crises. Be aware that the introductions to each of those scenarios is probably a bit longer than it has to be, but they are still engaging. It can be a one-player game, or a “private” game can easily be set up just for your students.

I’m adding it to The Best Online Games Students Can Play In Private Virtual “Rooms” and to The Best Places To Read & Write “Choose Your Own Adventure” Stories.

Delightful New “Hamilton” Video

Earlier this year, Weird Al Yankovic did ‘The Hamilton Polka’ as part of a series of songs the Hamilton producers released – they were all adapted from the original music.

Yesterday, the cast members of Hamilton did their own version of Yankovic’s “polka,” and it’s a lot of fun:
