"How nine-year-olds solve the world's toughest problems. In John Hunter's classroom, students fearlessly set about tackling global problems--and discovering surprising solutions--by playing Hunter's groundbreaking World Peace Game. These kids--from high school all the way down to fourth grade, in schools both well-funded and under-resourced--take on the roles of presidents, tribal leaders, diplomats, and military commanders. Through battles and negotiations, standoffs and summits, they strive to resolve a sequence of many-layered, interconnected scenarios, from nuclear proliferation to tribal warfare. Now, Hunter shares inspiring stories from over thirty years teaching the World Peace Game, revealing the principles of successful collaboration that people of any age can apply anywhere. He offers all of us not only a forward-thinking report from the front lines of American education, but also a generous blueprint for a world that bends toward cooperation, rather than conflict. In this deeply hopeful book, a visionary educator shows us what the future of education can be. "-- Provided by publisher.
"Award-winning teacher and high-profile public speaker John Hunter offers insights into conflict resolution and collective problem-solving gleaned from his many years teaching kids through the "world peace game," an innovative global systems simulation he created"-- Provided by publisher.
