see real life examples of what is being talked about.
The students will be tasked to use 's “Win
the White House” game to be elected president. The game
has them choose a name, avatar, party and political stances.
Once the students chooses a political party there an array of
issue summaries including the stance of that party. The
game starts with a debate allowing the user to choose an
issue they stand for, and then select from options as to why
they stand behind that issue and what it means to their
campaign, and as you debate you get tokens for correct
answers, if you get a response wrong in the debate the other
candidates correct you based on the view of the party you
have chosen and political climate. Following your
nomination you need to campaign, fundraise, and travel.
Once the student has completed the game they will complete
an essay about the strategies they used and what was
effective, including why they feel they got elected or did not
get elected president. They will discuss changes they would
make if they were running for president in the real world
and why they think those were effective. Additionally they
will discuss if they feel this was a useful simulation , why or
why not.
After completing the campaign simulator and essay
they will have a short discussion post regarding their
thoughts on the process and one thing they were surprised
by, and they will respond to two other classmates in this
format. The discussion post and responses will be due a
couple days apart to allow everyone to post.
