Read what other instructors say about Statecraft in our Case Studies:
Statecraft is The Best Tool I’ve Ever Used in a Classroom
The game is going to take its own turn depending on the students. It can go in any direction. By being flexible and able to teach different lessons as the game develops I can get the real benefits and capitalize on teachable moments.
Statecraft “Makes Learning Sticky” & Adds Fun in Online Classes
Getting kids engaged in ideas is important. I don’t want kids to be passive receptacles of knowledge that they sit back in a test and two or three weeks later they promptly forget and never use [the information] again. Statecraft helps make learning sticky. I’ll use it again.
Worth It: Sim Creates Emotional Connections to Course Material
I could see students enjoyed the simulation and they did engage with their peers. Many of them have told me, “Now we understand how hard it is to achieve cooperation in foreign policy and international relations.”

THE RIGHT SIMULATION FOR YOUR COURSE
U.S. Government Classes
Public Administration and Policy
U.S. Foreign Policy
In the Statecraft U.S. Government Simulation students take on key roles including members of Congress, executive branch officials, and members of the media and interest groups. As they collaborate and compete to achieve their goals they’ll experience the drama of U.S. politics firsthand. Every student has the potential to dramatically impact the outcome of the simulation, which culminates after five weeks in a final election where students see their decisions manifest in final results.
As students attempt to navigate their role, their goals and the U.S. political system they’ll get sucked into the excitement of the simulation. Questions will arise along the way that become prime teachable moments and they must apply course concepts to successfully achieve their strategies. Engagement creates an active learning situation where they experience U.S. government in a personal, unforgettable way. Plus, students gain competence in valuable career skills like leadership, strategic thinking, negotiation and communication tactics that help them thrive in the “real” world!

Real World Application
Students experience global politics on a personal level so they understand and absorb your course material much better. They have more than enough resources and opportunities during the game play to make mistakes, learn from them and ultimately succeed in the simulation and class. This gives them a chance to learn important life lessons in a low-stakes environment and later apply their experience to truly important situations like the workplace.
"INSTRUCTORS ENJOY STATECRAFT AS MUCH AS THEIR STUDENTS"Statecraft is an engaging International Relations simulation that allows students to acquire personal experiences, which I have found helps them better relate to and understand complex concepts, such as nuclear deterrence, balancing power, and fostering cooperation though organizations. The number one complaint I hear from other professors about simulations, is the amount of work required on their part. Not Statecraft! This is a self-contained simulation that instructors enjoy as much as their students.
"AN IMPORTANT PART OF MY CLASSROOM TOOLKIT"I have used Statecraft for over 3 years now and have been amazed at the way it elevates engagement in the classroom. The competitive element raises new and challenging concepts for my students. Media reports, readings or lecture may occasionally bring life to international politics. This tool allows me to ride the wave of their enthusiasm when they have a ready reference point for IR concepts and dynamics. I will continue to use Statecraft as an important part of my classroom toolkit.
"STATECRAFT CAN ENGAGE STUDENTS IN A WAY LECTURE DOESN'T"When you think about the different levels of learning, when a student can apply their knowledge or when a student is experiencing an activity which then the textbook learning helps illustrate that really reinforces what they’re learning. Statecraft can engage students in a way lecture doesn’t. I recall having some pretty good feedback overall from the students in the class I used it in so I’d like to continue using it as much as I can.
