Handbook for the Role of Games in Teaching Speech Communication.
Weatherly, Michael
One of the most promising devices available to the modern instructor is based upon a simple premise--find out what children like to do and turn it into an educational experience. This premise has resulted in the development of many educational games and toys for younger children. As students grow older, games are used less; yet children and adults do not lose their desire to play. Games for older children and adults are available and more are being developed. As a method for teaching communication, games are the focus of this handbook. This guide contains sections on how to choose the games students can play. Also included are research relating to the effectiveness of games in teaching; a selected list of available games accompanied by student evaluations, appropriate applications, descriptions and grade levels; and a more general list of other available games. The handbook also includes a selected game bibliography and a source listing for additional information concerning educational games. (LG)
