Napoleon Espionage is meant to teach the students about the Napoleonic Wars and how important espionage was for both sides of the battle. The students are given a code name and a specific allegiance at the beginning of the project that they will use while completing assignments. They must gather information through letters, watching the online videos, and collaborating with their fellow students. Since there were so many different countries involved during the Napoleonic Wars not every student will have the same allegiance and might be fed disinformation as a result.
The short video clip is one of many that support the overall project. It provides general information about a famous battle or movement during the war from which the student will have to pick out certain information. Partnered with their individual letter and map, they must decipher the information to complete each assignment each week. When the course is complete the students will have a greater understanding of how important espionage was during the Napoleonic Wars and how it shaped the events of history.
Each packet includes the Weathered case, Napoleonic map, Quill, and Secret communications from their commanding officer.
The web page is where the students can document their progress through maps, videos, and communication with other spies in the class.
