Perché Simulazioni di lavoro 1. History Simulations Engage Students Students that have problems paying attention or staying focused because they find History boring or that have ADD or ADHD, seem to really get involved in the simulations. Barkley says that interesting, challenging and meaningful experiences are more apt to keep students with ADHD motivated and engaged. Since students with ADHD function in the realm of the immediate, he says they may not work for delayed rewards such as grades: the reward must be in the task itself. History Simulations are sometimes the "hook" you need to get students engaged and more involved. When we have completed either the World War One Simulation or World War Two Simulation students ask more questions and discussion is a thousand times better as we study what really happened.

Sweet Chariot: the story of the spirituals One important purpose of many spirituals during the slave period was to provide motivation and inspiration for the ongoing struggle for freedom, a struggle which included systematic efforts to escape5 from bondage as well as numerous slave-led revolts and insurrections6.

As stories of specific African ancestors faded over time, enslaved people appropriated heroes from the Christian Bible as ancestral equivalents7. The stories of Old Testament figures – often perceived by enslaved Africans as freedom fighters – held particular significance as models of inspiration.

World’s Last Chance believes that truth is ever advancing and has covenanted to bring to its website advancing truth as it unfolds.

Why "Yahushua"? Some have written me asking for an explanation of why I use the form "Yahushua" in reference to the Messiah while others use "Yahshua", "Yeshua" or "Yehoshua".

If you don't believe me, read the below scriptures:
