An Annotated Bibliography of Games and Simulations in Consumer Education.
Thirty-two games and simulations relating to consumer education comprise this annotated bibliography designed to aid the teacher of adult basic education students and others in their search for teaching devices. Topics covered in the various simulations include money management, insurance, credit, credit unions, consumer law, consumer frauds, economics, ecology, clothing, housing, automobiles, and decision-making. Each of the 32 games is evaluated for its educational possibilities, student interest, and physical characteristics by an evaluation instrument specifically designed for this purpose. The questions in the evaluation are not weighted, as their importance will vary for each teacher and class. All the games/simulations have been played at least twice by high school students, graduate assistants, and other adults. Information on the publisher, date, cost, suggested number of players, and reading level is also included. (Author/JR)
