The audio version of the book is now in production and John Hunter is narrating!
The book, World Peace and Other 4th Grade Achievements by John Hunter, will be published on April 2, 2013. Following the tremendous success and reach of the film by the same name and John's many appearances and speaking engagements in community events and schools across the country, the book promised to provide many more stories of children's unique and fresh perspective in solving the world's conflicts and dilemmas. John has set about the process of telling the stories of both the development and evolution of the game as well as many memorable stories of students whose growth through the experience of playing the game can give us hope that we are developing compassionate, creative, and strong leaders for tomorrow.
Pre-orders for the book are being accepted now at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Powell's. Order your copy below.
In this video, you can see the detail and complexity of the game as John Hunter oriented the students, most of whom have not played before.
We continue to be pleased by the number of teachers who are, with their students, created learning games inspired by the World Peace Game. Creating one's own version of the World Peace Game offers ownership, critical thinking, and creative problem-solving in the creation of the game and it is exactly what we hope more and more teachers will do everywhere.
Here are notes and comments from teacher Steven Clacher and his 6th class at Kingston International School in Kowloon Tong, Hong Kong.
Taking Action To Transform Learning
Creator of the World Peace Game Foundation, John Hunter, has partnered with Warren County Public Schools to spread the word about this special project and film.
According to Hunter, this collaboration will spawn continued growth and creativity by incorporating a forward thinking and globally comprehensive long-term plan for educational professionals.
“Partnerships such as these help re-structure the thought processes surrounding traditional teaching methods. It encourages teachers to change their perspective and approach to not only teaching, but also their role as a positive leader”.
