Games Students Can Play: Teacher's Manual, Dilemmas of Political Participation.
Moore, J. Malcolm; Rabin, Jack
This publication contains a collection of readings which discuss political participation in American government and games which students can play to get more involved in the topic. Intended for use on the college level and with advanced courses on the secondary level, the book heightens the mutual educational experience for both teacher and student. Teaching techniques include readings followed by classroom discussion and simulations which involve the student in decision making and individual or group participation. The first four parts, and major portion, of the student text are a collection of 27 articles from journals and books. The readings discuss perspectives on an expanding political participation, the institutional setting for participation, participation at the higher levels, and participation by the rank and file. The fifth and final section contains the following four simulations: (1) Beyond a Reasonable Doubt; (2) University Grades: To "B" or Not to "B"; (3) Desegregate Now; and (4) Presidential Nominating Convention. A separate teachers manual details the purpose of each game, the instructor and student preparations required beforehand, any supplies needed, the schedule of game-related events, and discussion topics useful in rap sessions. Subject and author indexes are included in the student text. (Author/RM)
