CREATING A CONSTITUTION: WELCOME TO THE ISLAND OF KEECKLAH!
Build Weeks at Long-View are 4-day immersive projects that expand academic blocks and focus on one, rich challenge. They typically involve experts from the larger community, call for high levels of reasoning and discourse, are highly collaborative, and are quite complex. Build Week #6 spanned social studies, history, government, and politics and challenged our learners to write their own constitution for a utopian island, called Keecklah. The deeply immersive experience began with a simulation and evolved into the ratification and publishing of Keecklah's Constitution on the amazing website, Constitute. Constitute was developed by the authors of the Comparative Constitutions Project at the University of Texas at Austin and was seeded with a grant from Google Ideas.
