Simulation, Gaming, and Conventional Instruction: An Experimental Comparison.
Fennessey, Gail M.; And Others
An environmental problems unit was organized to be taught with three approaches. One approach contained two simulation exercises, one contained a simulation game and a simulation exercise, and one contained no simulations. These approaches were compared for their effectiveness for teaching facts and relationships and for producing favorable attitudes. An experiment involving 60 classes at the third, fourth, and eighth grade levels showed the three treatments to be equally effective. A 10-item bibliography, and appendixes presenting material used in the unit are included. (Author)
