iCivics Adds Bilingual Social Studies Game

| 0 comments

 

As I’ve mentioned before, I haven’t always been the biggest fan of iCivics, the popular learning games site begun by former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.

I’ve thought that many (but not all) of their games have been overly-complicated, and they really put their foot in it with a horribly-done one on immigration (see Sandra Day O’Connor’s Site To Change Immigration Game Because Of Your Comments).

Last year, however, they began to make some very positive changes (see iCivics Steps Up Its Game Big Time With Free Virtual Classrooms & Primary Source Interactive).

They’ve followed those moves with another good one that is highlighted in today’s Washington Post: Spanish-language video game aims to teach students about civil rights.

Yes, they’ve produced a Spanish and an English version of the same game, Do I Have A Right?

I hope this is the first of many multilingual versions of their resources.

I’m adding this info to The Best Resources For “Bill Of Rights Day”

Thanks to Giselle Lundy-Ponce for the tip.
