A Rabun Gap Education

Sophomores participate in World Peace Game

Geopolitical simulation teaches collaboration and creative problem solving.
Sophomore humanities students can now say they have navigated military conflict, environmental challenges, and global economics during an intense geopolitical simulation during class.

Students all played the World Peace Game as a part of the Humanities 10 curriculum.  The World Peace Game is like a multi-dimensional game of chess, with several governments including a united nations body, an arms dealer company, a legal counsel firm, and a world banking institution. These entities find themselves embroiled in a complex and interlocking set of simultaneous military, economic, social, and environmental crises. 
The challenging and creatively demanding goals of the game are two-fold —  for student-run governments to bring prosperity to the entire world by having each nation’s individual assets (budgets) increase beyond their initial value and extricating each country from all initial crisis situations with the least amount of military action.

The World Peace Game is a great example of our Applied Learning model in action. Students practice collaboration, creative problem solving, and global citizenship as they work through the gameplay.
