This is Kind of a Big Deal!
Utilizing the best of game-based and constructivist learning theories, this outline shows teachers how to use Civic Mirror to tackle the CHV20 curriculum and maximize student engagement.
The Civic Mirror’s fit with Ontario’s CHV20 curriculum (2013) continues to be excellent. The revised document opens with the following statement (preface):
It is important that students be connected to the curriculum; that they see themselves in what is taught, how it is taught, and how it applies to the world at large.
Quite excitingly, this is one of Civic Mirror’s greatest strengths: by immersing students into a complex simulated country of their own and challenging them to self-govern it, the program provides students with highly engaging experiences and opportunities to practice political inquiry and active citizenship.
