Program Director's Manual for Solving Multi-Ethnic Problems: A Simulation Game for Elementary and High School Teachers.
Venditti, Frederick P.
This manual has been prepared for the use of program directors who will assume the overall responsibility for planning and conducting the Valleybrook Elementary School-Lakemont High School Simulation Game. The game is created to give professional school personnel and prospective teachers opportunities to come to grips with typical problems of desegregated elementary and secondary schools. It is designed to pinpoint the most real and urgent problems, to generate intense personal involvement in heuristic problem-solving activities, and to promote meaningful human interaction in multi-cultural groups. In the game itself, majority-white elementary and secondary schools have been simulated in which players assume the roles of new teachers. The players practice solving typical problems in desegregated schools, which are presented on film, in written incidents, and through role-plays. The manual itself contains a description of the components of the game, instructions for conducting the game, discussion of administrative activities, and problem materials. (Author/JW)
