“By playing PolitiCraft, you narrate your own story of civic action”
PolitiCraft is a narrative-based ACTION CIVICS card game, endorsed by the National Council for the Social Studies, that guides students through varying levels of civic engagement. Through game play, students are guided by the deck to craft narratives based upon civic issues of their choosing (e.g., personal, local, national, etc.). Doing so informs students of the multiple pathways available to them to achieve real change in their community.
Aligned with the National Council for the Social Studies’ (NCSS) C3 Framework, PolitiCraft encourages students to improve their schools, strengthen local communities and foster greater civic participation nation-wide.
In December 2016, PolitiCraft again presented at the National Council for the Social Studies Annual Conference, this time in Washington, DC. The reception again from teachers and administrators was extremely positive, especially those who attended our session at the 2015 conference in New Orleans. Since that first presentation, we have created all-new original artwork into the game, as well as incorporating feedback we have received from early testers. Decks are available now in our Online Store by clicking here or on the Buy PolitiCraft button in the right column.
