Simulations are a fantastic way to create lively and organic student centered discussions. In this simulation, students will be transported to pre-revolutionary France and will debate the following question: which estate should face the burden of additional taxes?
This simulation is sure to have students engaged in a fierce and passionate discussion. I have facilitated this simulation numerous times. In the end, students always leave with a full understanding of how the Estates General sparked revolution in France, while having fun along the way!
