Nine-year-olds can solve the world’s toughest problems.
John Hunter’s classroom, students fearlessly tackle global problems and
discover surprising solutions by playing his groundbreaking “World Peace Game.”
These kids—from high school to fourth grade, in schools both well-funded and
underresourced—take on the roles of politicians, tribal leaders, diplomats,
bankers, and military commanders. Through battles and negotiations, standoffs
and summits, they strive to resolve dozens of complex, seemingly intractable
real-world challenges, from nuclear proliferation to tribal warfare, financial
collapse to climate change.
In World Peace
and Other 4th-Grade Achievements, Hunter shares the wisdom he’s gleaned
from more than thirty years of teaching his game. Here he reveals the
principles of successful collaboration that people of any age can apply
anywhere. His students show us how to break through confusion, bounce back from
failure, put knowledge to use, and fulfill our potential. Hunter offers 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 audiobook, a visionary educator shows us what
the future can be.
