SAN DIEGO, Calif. – May 31 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The idea for college online instructor, James Musgrave’s new service, Contemporary Instructional Concepts (www.contempinstruct.com), came after many semesters of teaching online through a variety of San Diego colleges.

“I discovered that students learn faster and with more retention when they participate in creative, interactive digital games,” James says, “and now I can help parents and school districts create games that will get their students’ attention and allow them to learn under proper guidance.” Musgrave spent over two years developing and testing (both online and in the classroom) his award-winning “Judge Jimmy Game,” which teaches students how to argue by participating in mock court trials.

Parents and school districts can now purchase the “Judge Jimmy Game” and its accompanying etext, Argument Online (with free teachers’ manual) at http://www.contempinstruct.com. In addition, Musgrave works with school districts and parents to create tailored digital games that can be placed on the Internet server to be used by the students in an interactive environment.

Just for visiting his site, teachers will also receive Musgrave’s innovative and “free” research paper grading tool, the “Writing Research Assistant Template,” which was developed under a grant from the CCC Confer web site (contempinstruct.com/Autotext%20Grammar/Writing%20Assistant/Office%20Hours.htm).
