Fun and Games

By February 5, 2011

Do you want to be president of the United States, on the Supreme Court, a Member of Congress? Whether you do or not, you can play one on the Internet. Go to the iCivics website and play their games. They are a ton of fun. iCivics "is a web-based education project designed to teach students civics and inspire them to be active participants in our democracy. iCivics is the vision of Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, who is concerned that students are not getting the information and tools they need for civic participation, and that civics teachers need better materials and support." Justice O'Connor is right. The problem is bigger though. This has been going on for years and now we have an adult population that is ill prepared for civic participation. Check out the site, encourage others to go play the games. They are not just for kids.
