Taking Action: Writing, Reading, Speaking, and Listening through Simulation-Games.
Troyka, Lynn Quitman; Nudelman, Jerrold
Six simulation games for English instruction in the classroom are offered in this book, the aim of which is to encourage communication. In simulation games, rules are structured to correspond to those that are an integral part of a real situation, with supporting documentation replicating actual materials pertinent to the situation. The contents of the games have to do with prison reform, car purchase, conservation, the roles of the sexes, government spending, and genetics and the family of the future. The materials include photographs, graphs, cartoons, and drawings that encourage realistic visualization of the situation. Each game consists of four segments: role choice, strategy round, negotiation round, and decision making. Each game takes from 35 to 55 minutes and little teacher supervision is necessary. (TS)
