Groundbreaking legislation is about to be passed. An international incident is on the horizon. And then, a crisis shocks the nation. The clock is ticking and Americans want answers about who's in charge. Invite your students to step into their roles and find out.
iThrive Sim: Leading Through Crisis invites high school students into the room where it happens. As members of the Crisis Management Team, they will respond to domestic and international incidents during a crisis situation. Playing the role of cabinet members and White House staff, students will be asked to make high-stakes decisions, with the fate of the country in their hands during a critical time.
Whether gameplay is virtual or in person, students explore what it takes to:
Respond to a crisis with rapidly evolving updates and unclean consequences
Grapple with competing priorities like transparency and protecting national security
Make decisions and demonstrate sound leadership under intense scrutiny
Key civics content on the 25th Amendment and the executive branch of the U.S. government is brought to life through immersive roleplay. The content is aligned with state and national standards so it fits right into your teaching plan with ease.
Social and emotional learning is embedded in gameplay as students have opportunities to demonstrate and refine responsible decision-making, relationship skills, and self-awareness during intense interactions. They draw on their inner resources as they collaborate to keep the government functioning during dual crises at home and abroad.
