Whatever Happened to Debbie Kraft? An Awareness Game for Educators, Counselors, Students, and Parents.
Feminists Northwest, Seattle, WA.
An educational game relating to alternate career and life-style choices of an 18-year-old female high-school senior comprises this booklet. The game is designed to aid young women in their attempt to make decisions about their lives. Choices offered at the beginning of the game are: You decide to go to college in the fall, You decide to get a job, You decide to marry your boyfriend, and You decide to spend your summer at the beach and wait until next fall to make a decision. Each choice is followed by several options, all requiring the player to turn to another page and encounter yet another set of options. All game options eventually lead to seven questions: (1) Do you feel the failure was Debbie's fault? (2) What do you think will happen to Debbie next? (3) What groups and agencies in Debbie's community could have given her information, encouragement, and moral support? (4) How could Debbie's situation have changed? Who could have changed it? (5) How could Debbie's parents, teachers, and counselors have prepared her to become an independent, confident, self-fulfilled woman? (6) How could they have halped her avoid getting trapped? (7) In what ways are people working for social change so that young women can have different life options? Bibliographic sources are cited. (Author/DB)
