Annotated List of Locally Developed Educational Games. Project SESAME Practical Document No. 7. Revised Edition.
Project SESAME, Danville, PA.
The principal objective of Project Sesame is to improve opportunities for pupil learning by developing a model for the coordination of smaller school districts' innovative ventures; a related objective is the stimulation of professional staff. This Project Sesame document lists educational games (K-12) developed at workshops by teachers in a 5-county region of central Pennsylvania. Many of the games have been played and tested in the 18 elementary and secondary school systems in the region. To achieve the objectives, diverse innovative, experimental, and curriculum programs are supported by Project SESAME G which is financed with ESEA Title III funds. The game listings include a general description, suggested subject areas (business education, foreign languages, geography, health, language arts, math, science, and social studies), grade levels (primary, intermediate, junior high, and senior high), and number of players, as well as possible subject areas or grade levels for which the games can be adapted. Index sheets are included to assist the reader in using the alphabetized list of games. All of the games have been edited and are continually being revised by the SESAME G staff. Write-ups of the basic components of each game are available from the SESAME office on request. (WCM)
