Former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor has created a website to help students learn about civics issues.
I’ve previously posted about the site, and its games. One of them — Cast Your Vote — is pretty good, and it’s on The Best Websites For Learning About Civic Participation & Citizenship. There are a lot of interactives there, but I think most of them are overly-complicated — even for native English speakers. “Cast Your Vote,” though, puts you in the role of a person at a political debate asking questions and evaluating the answers of the people running for office. It’s pretty good and useful.
However, they’ve just added one on immigration that I think is pretty weird and borderline insulting. Check out Immigration Nation and let me know if I’m being overly-sensitive. I’m open to hearing that that I might need to take a “chill pill.”
