System Dynamics and Student Leadership
Author(s): Dan Barcan Subject: Implementation
  A discussion of one of the activities at DynamiQueST 2001, how it worked and how systems dynamics affected the students involved
Systems Thinking in Teacher Education
Author(s): Ruth Fruland Subject: Why K12 SD
  In this article I will present some results from my dissertation research, in which I introduced systems thinking (ST) and systems dynamics (SD) to preservice teachers in an interdisciplinary methods course. I wanted to understand how preservice (student) teachers would respond to the paradigm of systems thinking, including specific components, and SD modeling methods, to guide future work in teacher education.
Systems Tools in High School: Interdisciplinary Learning in a Science Classroom
Author(s): Alan Ticotsky Subject: Implementation
  A summary of how one teacher teaches across the curriculum. Chris DiCarlo teaches high school classes in several different disciplines at Innovation Academy Charter School (IACS). While technically in the science and math departments, he has taught physic
Teacher as Systems Designer: Classroom Structures for Effective Student Learning
Author(s): Rob Quaden, & Alan Ticotsky Subject: Conference
  This workshop examines both the practical and philosophical aspects that contribute to a dynamic, learner-centered classroom. We will look at teaching and learning from several points of view, using a variety of systems tools. In this fast-paced, hands-on introductory session, educators will develop their understanding of systems by using some of the key tools of systems thinking, system dynamics, and organizational learning. Explore how behavior-over-time graphs, iceberg diagrams, stock and flow diagrams, connection circles, and causal loop diagrams can be applied to understand and solve complex problems in an educational setting.
Teaching Humanities Using Systems Tools
Author(s): Jeff Potash, Jason O'Neil-Willoughby, & Beth Olesen Subject: Conference
  In this workshop, we will explore how different system tools offers opportunities for students to look for patterns in human history  and to ask deeper and more thoughtful questions relating to the causes and connections underlying these patterns. Building systems structures (causal loops, connection circles, models) uniquely empowers students to actively explore “what ifs” in ways that bridge past, present, and future.
Teenagers with Global Control
Author(s): Teresa F. Hazel, & Timothy Joy Subject: Cross-Curricular
  From CC-STADUS. After reading "Fahrenheit 451", students inherit a nation out of control with respect to its population and resources and have a cyber-century to salvage it. This model hails from "The Rulers" packet, with a few changes in the model and presentation. It begins with a basic population model, and so it works well for inexperienced STELLA users, teachers as well as students. It then expands through three permutations, and so do the curricular possibilities.

The Art of Money in Art: Understanding the Value of a Collectible
Author(s): Maureen Byrne Subject: Cross-Curricular
  From Catalina Foothills School District. Developed for an 8th grade Visual Art course, this unit uses Behavior-over-Time Graphs, causal loop diagrams, and a STELLA model to help students learn many systems concepts as well as their studio art and art history lesson.

The Fish Pond Story
Author(s): Malcolm Brooks, & Richard Tu Subject: Cross-Curricular
  The sample game developed by Richard Tu in Taiwan and a simple simulation used in Maine based upon that game.

Complex Systems Connection: Cause within System. In systems where renewable resources are used up, people often blame others. Decisions to use the resource faster than it can be replenished is the real cause, however.
The Mammoth Extinction Game
Author(s): Gene Stamell, A Ticotsky, & R Quaden Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Prepared with the support of the Gordon Stanley Brown Fund. In this interdisciplinary science, math, and social studies lesson, third graders examine how the wooly mammoth became extinct about 11,000 years ago. With a game and a hands-on model they learn about graphing, probability anda exponential decay in math, and they are intorduced to system dynamics modeling as a useful tool for looking at problems.

The Shape of Change
Author(s): Rob Quaden, Alan Ticotsky, & Debra Lyneis Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Eleven hands-on lessons/activities that promote critical thinking, teamwork and dialogue.

Complex Systems Connection: Some lessons in the Shape of Change series can be used to illustrate specific characteristics of complex systems. Please see individual lessons for more information.
