Playing Is the Thing: Three Activities for School Leaders.
Williams, Marium
When autonomous adults are faced with challenging tasks within a nonstressful, collegial environment, they may have an optimal opportunity to learn. This paper asserts that educators should therefore consider strategies for infusing games with academic concepts. Guidelines are offered for conducting three games to stimulate thinking, active learning, and collegial sharing for school-leadership candidates: (1) a planning-simulation game; (2) critical-thinking question cubes; and (3) a leadership perspective multiple-intelligence game (Williams 1995). The latter game is designed to develop seven kinds of intelligence--linguistic, human relations, visual, musical, logical/mathematical, bodily/kinesthetic, and interpersonal. One figure is included.
