Global tensions are rising in Europe, climate change threatens dire consequences, and the COVID-19 pandemic is entering its third year. There is perhaps no more important time for students to build an understanding of our interconnected world and how policy decisions made in the U.S. affect other countries.
Teaching global civics right now will equip your students to consider: What is the United States’ role in the world? Why does the world matter? How can leaders balance U.S. needs with those of other countries? How are global civics related to domestic civics? Join iCivics and the Council on Foreign Relations for a panel discussion that will engage teachers and experts on foreign policy to answer these questions and talk about how students are using a new digital game, Convene the Council, to learn about U.S. foreign policy.
- Explore how thinking in terms of global civics can enhance both civics education and global literacy.
- Understand how to use an interactive game as a part of a highly engaging unit.
- Gain an understanding of how to use the game to approach conversations about current global crises we face, such as the Russia-Ukraine war.
- Discover additional resources for teaching global civics.
