Create National Identity #2 Civic Mirror Classroom Video Series, Episode 4

Create National Identity

Create National Identity

This is the second step of the student-run “Create National Identity” activity. This lesson can be skipped if teachers are short on classroom time; however, if they choose to run this lesson, it has two main goals:

1. Students vote on their Civic Mirror national identity items, and can then upload these pieces of work to their country’s wiki space on civicmirror.com, and

2. Students pay special attention to their ongoing self-governance (i.e. classroom dynamics), trying to apply the lessons they learned from Create National Identity #1 to this one.

CITIZEN PROFILES: Once the votes are done, Civic Mirror Instructor’s distribute Citizen Profiles to their students. These include each student’s Hidden Agenda, their starting money, and other information about their simulated citizen identity. The Civic Mirror Manuals explain the Citizen Profiles in full detail.

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.
