Teaching Social Justice with The Social Justice Game
The Social Justice Game is an educational board game that helps players/students experience systemic inequity in an embodied way.
A parody of Monopoly™, it forces players to pit their own expectations of ‘fairness’ against the economic pressures they experience in the game. Unlike Monopoly, which assumes a level socioeconomic field, The Social Justice Game more closely reflects actual inequities under the current American economy.
Learn to use the game to help students develop an embodied understanding of the challenges of poverty.
Better understand ideological concepts such as ‘social Darwinism’ and how to challenge students to challenge them.
Understand how to access library resources to play the game with your students.
