Behind Closed Gates: Potential dynamics when one group or individual is given complete control over another
Author(s): Jen Andersen, Anne LaVigne, Jeff Potash, & Lees Stuntz Subject: Cross-Curricular
  This lesson with accompanying simulation is loosely based on an experiment that was conducted at Stanford University in 1971. Phillip Zimbardo wanted to see how typical people would act if they were asked to take on roles of prisoners and prison guards for a two-week period. The experiment was stopped after only six days because of escalating, abusive behavior of the guards and concerns about the well-being of the prisoners. In the simulation, students take on the role of a social scientist, trying to understand how a similar situation (with guards having complete control over prisoners)can create specific human responses, such as fear,repression, and resistance. They can then compare this situation to a host of other similar situations, fictional or real.

Comments on Future of K-12 Education (D-4900-1)
Author(s): Jay Forrester Subject: System Dynamics
  There is a fundamentally different kind of pre-college education that the author, along with many others, has been pioneering for more than twenty years. The demonstration phase is now completed and it is time to launch a major implementation program to e

Create and Run Your Own Newspaper: A Journalism Unit with a Simulation Game Part 1: Publish a Newspaper
Author(s): Daniel Barcan, Leah Zuckerman, Gary B. Hirsch, & Debra Lyneis Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Part 1 of a 3 part series. In this interdisciplinary language arts and social studies journalism unit, middle school students write articles and create their own newspapers. CS connection: Ineffective Action. Through this 3-part journalism unit, students can take on the role of newspaper owner. Using a simulation model, they can experience first-hand the complexity of managing a business. In complex systems, the levers we choose to push or pull often turn out to be low leverage policies, having little or no effect, or even the opposite effect of what was planned. This experience will help students gain an appreciation of how complex systems thwart our management of them through their interconnecting network of feedback loops.

Create and Run Your Own Newspaper: A Journalism Unit with a Simulation Game Part 2: Play the Game
Author(s): Daniel Barcan, Leah Zuckerman, Gary B. Hirsch, & Debra Lyneis Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Part 2 of a 3 part series. In this second part of a three-part journalism unit, students become newspaper owners and try to run their own successful businesses on a simulation game. The game is a system dynamics management flight simulator, a realistic model of a newspaper business which students run by making their own policy decisions on quality, hiring, firing, and pricing.

Create and Run Your Own Newspaper: A Journalism Unit with a Simulation Game Part 3: Examine the Model
Author(s): Daniel Barcan, Leah Zuckerman, Gary B. Hirsch, & Debra Lyneis Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Part 3 of a 3 part series. In this last part of a three-part journalism unit, students and teachers can take a closer look at the system dynamics model underlying the management flight simulator game from Part 2. There is a brief explanation of the model in simple terms, followed by a series of activities using the model as a laboratory.

Modeling Dynamic Systems Section 6
Author(s): Diana Fisher Subject: System Dynamics
  In the classroom example provided in this section, the author lists many "potential systems problems" that are related to the issue of overpopulation. As an extension exercise, students can be asked to identify ways in which people have attempted to solve

Modeling Dynamic Systems Section 8
Author(s): Diana Fisher Subject: System Dynamics
  Policy analysis gives students an opportunity to learn first-hand that complex systems are rich in feedback. They will experience the frustration of implementing well-meaning interventions, only to have them defeated by the feedback mechanisms of the syst
