Scenes from Form II History

The Treaty of Versailles Simulation

Form II History: The Treaty of Versailles Simulation

Form II students recently simulated the Versailles Peace Conference to see what their responses would have been at the conference following World War I. Role playing as leaders of the countries present, students had to negotiate with other leaders and attempt to accomplish aims and objectives favorable to their national interests. The final product of their negotiations: a student-developed Treaty of Versailles.

Hands on History

Form II History: Hands on History

Continuing their study of World War I, Form II students examined, read, and discussed real artifacts from the war and the 1920s. Many of the artifacts were leant to Dr. Schiller from families and other members of the community to help enrich this learning experience. Thank you to the Campbell family, Kintz family, Beeson family, Lim family, and History Department Chair John Campbell ’85 for sharing your family’s heirlooms and history for this interactive learning experience.
