Have your class get engaged about the human rights situation in Iraq and Syria by becoming the national security team in the Situation Room of the White House. Choose a President, analyze an intelligence video on the dangers of ISIS, then decide a course of action. As the teacher, you'll become the Chief of Staff, leading the meeting and guiding its discussion. After, get involved with outreach activities to assist Syrian refugees. All materials are ready-to-go, allowing you to begin today.



This is an AMAZING resource! I was planning a seminar based on these topics when I found this resource. The idea of a Presidential Cabinet Simulation takes my seminar to the next level! Thank you!
