Teaching Crisis Management: A National Security Council Simulation.
Chernotsky, Harry I.
This document describes a National Security Council (NSC) role playing exercise designed to introduce students to the complexities and dynamics of U.S. foreign policy crisis management. Based upon the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) program, "In the Face of Terrorism," this classroom exercise casts students as NSC team members charged with the responsibility of responding to a hypothetical airline hijacking incident. Following a review of the organization and the structure of the activity, its utility as an instructional device is examined. The study is based on the results of a survey of four groups of students who participated in the simulation exercise. (Author/NL)
