Simulated International Politics: Classroom Exercises.
Jackson, Robert M.; And Others
The manual consists of six easy to use simulation exercises for foreign relation classes at the secondary level. The games are designed to teach decision making skills, to sensitize students to the manner in which Americans have come to view the world, to help students understand the need to manage problems before they become too severe, and to demonstrate the impact of coalitions on the political stability and development strategies of developing nation states. The following games are included: (1) The Premier's Speech, (2) The Bargaining Process, (3) Crisis Management, (4) Guns or Butter, (5) Food Crisis, (6) Latin America Coalition Game. The purpose of the exercise, the game format, specific instructions for running the game, and questions which can be raised in the post-game debriefing period are provided for each simulation. All materials necessary for playing each game are included in the manual. (Author/RM)
