To Understand the Child: Design and Development of Anticipation Games. IDL Working Paper 9.12.
Thiagarajan, Sivasailam
Discussed is the development of games which provide teacher-trainees with experience in anticipating the responses of different types of handicapped children to different tasks. It is explained that the games are inexpensive, that they permit the trainee to become a participatory observer in an interactional setting, and that they provide immediate feedback based on empirical data. Four sample games are described in which trainees anticipate responses from student populations such as foreigners or the emotionally disturbed. The process of developing anticipation games is outlined in the following steps: task analysis, preparing question cards and collecting norms, designing and developing the game, and constructing testing instruments and validating the game. Appended are specific instructions for two variations of anticipation games. (LS)
