Want to engage students in current and contemporary issues? This project has students take the role of a leader from a country and make foreign and domestic policy decisions for that country. Students assume the role of the head of government and will be making crucial policy decisions for their country. This project has the flexibility to run all semester or just choose the scenrios that fit your class. The project includes: 17 assignments, rubrics for grading, self reflection, over 15 state standards aligned, pre-post test questions to show growth, & 3 additional enrichment activities with great cross curricular ideas with art or multi-media classes. Assignments topics include the following: History, Religion, Geography, NGOs, IGOs, Military, Leadership, Human Rights, Climate Change and more. I created this assignment with the concept of blended learning in a Social Studies classroom. Students will use the 21st century skills of critical & creative thinking and using the top of blooms taxonomy while they are attempting to run their country. Make students become active learners and transform the way you do your current events in World History, Government or World Issues classes.
