Ratifying the Constitution: A Digital Game Opportunity

Production of an online game that allows players to explore the history of the ratification of the United States Constitution.

iCivics, in collaboration with Filament Games and select scholars in the humanities, proposes to develop its 20th online educational video-game: "Ratification: The Great Debate.” The game will offer middle and high school students a new immersive experience on a pivotal topic: the ratification of the United States Constitution. Our goal is to impart students with core knowledge surrounding this eventful period, to develop their argumentative writing, and to give our thousands of teacher-users a unique resource to engage their students in our nation’s history.
