World Peace Game Master Class for Friends School Educators

The World Peace Game Foundation and Friends School of Baltimore are pleased to announce a special World Peace Game master class training for Friends School educators.

When: March 6 – 10, 2017

Where: Friends School of Baltimore

Description:

The World Peace Game Foundation and Friends School of Baltimore have designed a unique training opportunity for educators to become certified as World Peace Game Facilitators.  The World Peace Game is a hands-on political simulation that gives student players the opportunity to explore the connectedness of the global community through the lens of the economic, social, and environmental crises and the imminent threat of war. The goal of the game is to extricate each country from dangerous circumstances and achieve global prosperity with the least amount of military intervention. Created by John Hunter, the Game has been played in over 15 countries and 30 US locations. Hunter's TED talk has over 1.2 million views and he has presented to several schools including Penn Charter, Sidwell Friends, Wilmington Friends.

A World Peace Game Master Class with John Hunter is an unparalleled experience for teachers to come together in an environment insulated from the demanding rhythms and routines of the day in order to interrogate their own teaching practices. Using John Hunter’s World Peace Game as an inspiring and challenging analogy, class participants  observe Hunter facilitating  the World Peace Game with students for five mornings. Afternoon sessions involve debriefing  of the World Peace Game combined with a series of reflective questions and activities that uncover the grounding assumptions of the Game and the underlying education principles embedded in it. This process renders new possibilities for different approaches in their teaching method and their learning design and  certifies participants as WPG Facilitators with license to teach the World Peace Game in their classroom.. Using these insights, class participants take the outcomes evident in John Hunter’s work and design toward them using their own age group students and subject area and interest.

Classes are meant for teachers of all grade levels and subject areas.

  *   Engagement and Student Ownership of Learning
  *   Game as Third Teacher
