This book was written with the practicing teacher in mind. It offers ten tested, varied, and refined simulations that will enliven a classroom in grades 7-12 without sacrificing content. In fact, these lessons help a teacher teach concepts, material, and skills more effectively. The lessons are ready-to-use, including directions, background context, reproducible materials, and guidelines for assessment. Topics include: Constructing a New American Government, The Mighty Dorito Cartel, and Making the United Nations Work. The author also provides discussion on designing, modifying, running, and assessing simulations.
