World Game Study in the Community College. ERIC Clearinghouse for Junior Colleges Topical Paper No. 44.
Cohen, Martin J.
During 1973-74, the World Game was studied as an experiment on a community college campus. World Game is a means of engaging humanity's best intelligence on the situations and problems arising from living on Earth, and it is a means of ensuring that the intelligence and energy of wide ranges of people are engaged in the work. The experiment was conducted as a single course, rather than a full program of study, during each of three quarters of the school year. Results of the experiement showed that although there was only one instructor and about 60 students enrolled, the wide range of activities explored offered an opportunity to assess college and community reaction to the World Game studies. As an experiement to determine what kinds of preparation students need in order to succeed in World Game activities, the program was extremely valuable. It was shown that a self-selected sample of community college students can learn the essentials of the basic concepts and then apply some of the methods of World Game to the study of their community and society. An appendix provides a Student Project Report for the fall and winter quarters of the course. (DB)
