What is Practice Government

Practice Government is an online multiplayer game where you role play a member of Congress as a way of exploring American Government. Your goal is to maximize your Political Capital while balancing the need to achieve re-election every 2 years.

Practice Government allows students to explore the real-world challenges and day-to-day experiences of a member of the U.S. House of Representatives. Students compete and collaborate with classmates to obtain political capital by developing and passing legislation and strategizing political moves, such as seeking co-sponsorship of a bill from a member of the competing party, or launching a national media campaign. Players have limited resources to spend, so cooperation with other students is crucial to finding success in the game.

Accessible online through McGraw-Hill Connect or directly through www.mhpractice.com, Practice Government is available to students taking the American Government course at participating institutions.
