Create National Identity #1 Civic Mirror Classroom Video Series, Episode 2

Create National Identity

Create National Identity

This is the first student-run lesson in The Civic Mirror program. Creating a national identity is a two-step exercise, and it’s often best done with a teacher-guided reflection in between (as this video series shows). In this lesson, students work as a class to agree on the details of their soon-to-be nation, experiencing several hiccups along the way.

The purpose of this lesson is to allow students to collectively develop a sense of national identity, and ease into the role of collectively running and governing their simulated nation.

ARE YOU WONDERING WHAT THE CIVIC MIRROR IS?
Basically it’s a government and economics simulation that turns classrooms into countries and students into citizens. Far more than just a game, The Civic Mirror is a fully comprehensive civic education program that turns the old rules of teaching and learning on their head. Students actively assume real-world citizenship roles – both in the classroom and online – and work as individuals to provide for imaginary families and achieve hidden agendas, while working together to build a strong, democratic nation.
