In The Shape of Change, students engage in games and other classroom activities (teamwork, hands-on, learner-centered learning) to explore what changes over time. They draw behavior over time graphs to examine how these things changed, and they relate the patterns of behavior to other changes in their experience.

Step-by-step, students build stock/flow maps explaining each lesson activity. These stock/flow maps are tied directly to students’ earlier behavior over time graphs and to the underlying causal loop structures that drive the changes.

In this manner, students begin to build systems thinking skills – an understanding of how structure creates the behavior we observe all around us.

Simulations and lessons

Several of the lessons in this books have been converted into online simulations. These simulations allow students to further explore the systems concepts that are taught in this foundational book.

Explore the simulations.

While all of the lessons in these books are available for download from the CLE website, we find that the layout and the compilation of all the lessons in book format make them more useable.
