Profiles in Courage Simulations: Based on President John F. Kennedy's Pulitzer Prize Book. ETC Simulations Number Four.
Hostrop, Richard W.
This book presents simulation activities for the eight profiles of U.S. Senators presented in John F. Kennedy's "Profiles in Courage." Intended for student involvement, the simulations require student research and practice in order to carry out the designated roles. The simulations and role play are designed to actively involve the students in learning, using both the affective and cognitive domains. Each simulation exercise includes an introduction, objectives, and strategy (preparation, introduction, simulation, steps to follow, role cards, review, summarization, and reinforcement). The simulations focus on: (1) John Quincy Adams; (2) Daniel Webster; (3) Thomas Hart Benton; (4) Sam Houston; (5) Edmund G. Ross; (6) Lucius Quintus Cincinnatus Lamar; (7) George Norris; and (8) Robert A. Taft. (EH)
