Gaming and Simulations in Economics.
Dale, Lawrence R.
Economics teachers at the secondary and postsecondary level are provided with an overview and general recommendations for effective use of games and simulations. Material is divided into two sections. In section 1, a description of card games, board games, activities, and puzzles is followed by a discussion of the advantages of each of these types of games and the suggested procedure for using games in the classroom. Teachers are also provided with directions for designing their own board games, and a sample game which familiarizes intermediate grade and junior high school students with various types of taxes. Section 2 contains an evaluation of role-playing and simulation activities as well as materials for conducting a world poverty simulation in high school or university classrooms. (LP)
