Groundbreaking legislation is about to pass. An international incident is on the horizon. And then, a crisis shocks the nation and the world. The clock is ticking and the public wants answers about who's in charge.
iThrive Sim: Leading Through Crisis (BETA) is a role-playing simulation scenario hosted on the iThrive Sim platform that invites high school students in civics, history, and social studies classes to find them.
In iThrive Sim: Leading Through Crisis, students play as members of the president's Crisis Management Team, tasked with responding to complex challenges at home and abroad. To make high-stake decisions, students analyze data and reference primary source documents, exploring the 25th Amendment and the workings of the executive branch of the U.S. government as they collaborate to chart a path forward.
While students play through iThrive Sim: Leading Through Crisis, they flex and exercise core social and emotional skills as they weigh the pros and cons of decisions, manage competing priorities, and negotiate and compromise with their peers.
