ABOUT THE GAME
The World Peace Game is a hands-on political simulation that gives 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. As “nation teams,” students will gain greater understanding of the critical impact of information and how it is used.

Master Classes Are Open to Teachers of All Grade Levels
A 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. Classes are meant for teachers of all grade levels and subject areas.
Using John Hunter’s World Peace Game as an inspiring and challenging analogy, class participants are led by John Hunter through a series of reflective questions and activities that uncover the grounding assumptions of their teaching practice.
