Fantasy Congress & Politics Resources

Become a fan of learning about States & Congress

"fantasy congress" has been around for a long time, ever since a few college kids spun it up in their dorm room circa 2006. At Fanschool, teachers can create Congress or States games to dive into learning and get students publishing about it.

 

Politics is all about making decisions in groups. It is a science and an art. We could all become bigger fans of learning about how to utilize our power as citizens and scholars to work together better.

Draft Congress members or U.S. states to learn more about local politics, federalism, elections, and law. See "How to play real-world games" for how it works: You'll just need to subscribe and create a Space (rather than a league) to add Games to.
