Rise Up Education Kit
Rise Up is a fun game first, and it can also be used as a powerful education and organizing tool. To take this a step further, we’re creating an education kit to go alongside Rise Up, perfect for classrooms, organizing spaces, workshops, trainings, and even for self-education. The Education Kit is a digital download, and it will be suitable for both adults and youth. It consists of activities and discussion guides that go alongside playing Rise Up. It also has interactive and engaging worksheets that help participants dive into the subject matter even further. Extend your Rise Up experience and teach players more about building movements, activism, and community organizers! We have developed these educational resources to be implemented alongside Rise Up, for use wherever learning happens (in schools, at home, in workshops, in community spaces, and so on). The kit is suitable for ages 13 and up. It includes:
- The official Rise Up Education Kit: A digital resource including questions, suggestions for class projects, workshops, hand outs, and more
- A digital copy of our booklet covering the terms and issues used in Rise Up, which you can print out as many copies of as you need
- A digital copy of our interactive "Tools for Organizing a Protest or Rally" workbook
Workshops: This kit includes four educational workshops to guide you through gameplay and make your conversations deeper and more democratic. These are designed for audiences of thirteen and up. Also included are questions to prompt players to reflect on gameplay and movement building, as well as suggestions for projects that the group can pursue together. Handouts, worksheets, and other activities are also included.
This kit is entirely digital and will be delivered to you via e-mail. This education kit will be released in end of August, 2017. If you order now, you will be e-mailed with the kit when it is released.
