Evaluated was the use of 12 simulation games with approximately 650 adolescents in 19 corrective schools in Santa Cruz county including ranch schools, juvenile hall schools, drug dependent minor programs, and youth authority facilities. Topics of the simulation games were peer pressure, looking for and keeping a job, mathematics, driving responsibility, finding a place to live, fractions, ego building, use of leisure time, and buying and selling. Evaluation data on each game included the teacher's appraisal of each player's performance, the teacher's appraisal of the simulation, and the student's appraisal of the simulation. Evaluation resulted in positive conclusions regarding the usefulness of the games and specific recommendations as to the most appropriate simulations by type of student and student grade level. Appended are questionnaires and appraisal forms used in the evaluation. (DB)
