Town Hall (Summer 2000) Civic Mirror Classroom Video Series, Episode 15

Town Hall

Town Hall

This video shows students participating in a Civic Mirror Town Hall, the third event in every simulated year. These events are very loose meetings that allow all citizens to voice their frustrations and concerns to everyone in the country. This is the event where students are encouraged to look one another in the eyes and respectfully demand things for their family, demand things from their government, and demand things of one another. Students learn how to debate and deliberate, and why it’s important to be active and vocal citizens (those who speak are heard).

The Town Hall repeats the same two-step procedure until there are 10 minutes left, or until no one has anything left to say. The National Judge then asks if there will be any trials, and records all of the lawsuit / criminal accusations that are announced, in preparation for the National Court (the next event).

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.
