Seniors are preparing for the 36th year of the American Problems Totalitarian Simulation!
Seniors in the American Problems government class are preparing for the Totalitarian Simulation, scheduled for September 17th- October 1st. The simulation is designed to teach students about a form of government that seeks complete control over its citizens, such as the one portrayed in Orwell’s 1984. The simulation will expose students to the totalitarian principle of mass conformity via identification tags, uniform dress, limited speech, and government hierarchy, and is designed to help students understand what it might be like to live in a society that is void of the institutions and individual freedoms the United States enjoys. The simulation is conducted at the beginning of the A section of the American problems government course. For the remainder of the course, the simulation serves as a reference point from which students explore the values and institutions that protect us from totalitarianism and define our republic.
