A board game designed to teach junior high school students how to use the telephone directory is presented in this unit from the Greenfield Express Management System (GEMS) program, a California Demonstration Program in Reading. A project overview form from the California Centers for Educational Improvement (CCEI) describes the GEMS program and lists other units included in the program. To play the telephone directory game, students answer questions from "call cards" in order to advance their token around the board. Seventy-five call cards are provided; the first 25 offer an introduction to the telephone directory and the remaining 50 present realistic situations or problems. The questions and answers are based on the 1980 Bakersfield (California) telephone directory. Materials included in the unit are: (1) instructions to the teacher for presenting the unit; (2) rules for the game; (3) an answer key; (4) sample call cards; and (5) a sample game board. (DC)
