Using Games in School Geography A new collection of games and simulations for your geography classroom to challenge and excite your students This brand new collection offers a portfolio of tried and tested games and simulations. Each of the exercises can be applied to a particular National Curriculum strand of geography, covering Key Stages 2 to 5. They are designed to be interspersed among your curriculum teaching, represent a variety of styles and range from the simple to the complex. As well as enriching subject teaching they also encourage students to put themselves in the place of others, developing important social skills, empathy and critical thinking. The exercises in this new collection include operational games, role-plays and mathematical simulations. Simulations range from the exploration of development priorities on an island in the tropics to the issues underlying a local road-building project, and from the impact of large-scale ecological change to finding a good location for new settlement. Full materials and instructions for the use of each exercise are provided, along with a commentary for teachers.This new collection will enable you to: * encourage enthusiastic participation in your geography classroom * improve performance using games, which have been proven to be effective teaching and learning tools * contribute to students' social and emotional aspects of learning, developing skills of empathy, decision making and critical thinking that they can use across the curriculum and throughout their lives * add to your own range of teaching strategies, particularly those which encourage interaction with students, and develop your own games and simulations

Both an invaluable resource and a how-to-manual, this book is unlike any other on the market! All materials are reproducible! Two early charts help teachers to quickly determine which lessons can be used with which instructional units and which skills are emphasized in each item. Without sacrificing content, this book offers a happy compromise to teachers who are often dissatisfied with traditional rote instruction and with many of the substantively weak solutions designed to enliven courses. 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. Rick Hess is currently an assistant professor of education and government at the University of Virginia. His current research emphasizes the effects (or non-effects) of competition on public school systems.
