Debating the Future: A Social Security Political Leadership Simulation
Rackaway, Chapman; Goertzen, Brent J.
Journal of Political Science Education, v4 n3 p330-340 Jul 2008
Students are well served by course simulations that employ active learning styles and student-driven interaction. For debate on political issues, particular public policies are quite effective in stimulating that discussion. We developed an in-class simulation of political debate on the issue of Social Security. We describe the simulation itself, describe the learning goals and assessment model, explain its administration and offer some insights into the broader application of the simulation in other courses. (Contains 1 table and 2 notes.)
