Lewis, Darrell R.; Wentworth, Donald
This annotated bibliography, prepared primarily as a guide to elementary and secondary teachers, represents a substantial revision of a 1968 bibliography distributed by the Joint Council (ED 045 465). It is divided into seven parts. Part I is a selected listing of articles and references relating to the use of educational games and simulations in economics and other social sciences. Part II is an annotated survey of the limited research that has been done in the area of social science games and simulations. The third part is an annotated listing of all games and simulations currently available in economic education. Part IV contains a selective list of other more complete and publicly available bibliographies in the general area of games and simulations. Part V describes the professional organizations in the field. Interested teachers may want to become members of the organizations or receive information on current developments in the field. Part VI identifies journals and newsletters in the field that can be obtained by subscription or request. Finally, Part VII identifies the names and addresses of publishers and/or distributors of the exercises identified in this bibliography. (Author/JLB)
