Guidelines for Using a Social Simulation/Game.
Designed to help teachers maximize outcomes from using any social simulation/game, these guidelines are one part of a project which attempts to provide analytical and critical information on the use of simulation/games in social studies classrooms. The general approach of the guidelines is applicable to any of the simulation type activities now used in classrooms, although the orientation is specifically designed for simulation/games. The first part outlines the general teaching/learning approach, or philosophy, that underlies social simulation/games. The second part is a practical guide to preparing for and conducting social simulation/games. Steps outlined are preliminary planning and preparations; game start-up; game play; debriefing; and teacher's post-game tasks. Sample pages of the survey version used in classrooms to provide feedback for the revised guidelines are reproduced. Two other publications of this project with a projected publication date of Spring 1974 are Simulation/Games in Social Studies: What Do We Know? and Simulation/Games in Social Studies: A Report.
