Simulation Games in the Classroom: How Important is the Post-Game Discussion?
Livingston, Samuel A.
The importance of class discussion following a simulation game was investigated by means of an experiment in which four classes of high school students played Ghetto for two periods. Two classes then discussed the game, while the other two were tested before any discussion of the game. The results showed the discussion to have no effect on students' understanding of the game and no consistent effect on their attitudes toward the real-life persons represented in the game. The discussion did have a positive effect on two of the twelve individual attitude items. (Author)
