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.

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.
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.
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
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.
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
Studying The Lorax with Feedback Loops
Author(s): Rob Quaden, & Alan Ticotsky Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Students read "The Lorax," by Dr. Suess, and then develop a connection circle and causal loops to understand and illustrate the themes of the story.

Complex Systems Connection: Separate Cause and Effect, Short and Long Term Conflicts. Short-term focus on making money results in depletion of resource and environmental degradation over time and the collapse of the business. Actions and their detrimental consequences are separated by time.
Soda/Profit/Advertising Game
Author(s): Sam DeVore, Will Glass-Husain, & Mike Slootmaker Subject: Cross-Curricular
  From Catalina Foothills School District. STELLA II v. 3.0 models of the MIT Beer Game, called the Soda Game in our high school version, where students operate a retail soda business. Worksheets included.

Complex Systems Connection: Cause within System.

Smallpox Crisis Management Simulation
Author(s): Ron Zaraza Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Twenty-three students from three Portland area high schools accepted an invitation to serve as part of the CMT for an unspecified disaster simulation. In 30 hours at Wilson High School, they went from the introduction of the problem to a fully developed and model-tested plan for dealing with a smallpox outbreak, reducing deaths from a possible 750,000+ to fewer than 250. They developed a control plan that used the same strategies the World Health Organization developed over a ten-year period for dealing with smallpox outbreaks.

Complex Systems Connection: Separate Cause and Effect. For some illness/disease, symptoms appear long after initial infection. Sometimes people travel great distance while infected because they are unaware of the infection. Medical "detectives" faced with an epidemic must understand how the infection spreads and how quickly. Delays in the system make this more difficult.

Shape of Change (Lesson 9): The Connection Game, including Stocks and Flows
Author(s): Rob Quaden, Alan Ticotsky, & Debra Lyneis Subject: Cross-Curricular
  From "The Shape of Change." Students play a game in which their movements around the room depend on the movements of other players.

Complex Systems Connection: Ineffective Action, Incorrect High-Leverage Policies. This lesson can be used to gain an intuitive understanding of what it means to say a policy has "low leverage." This lesson can be used to gain an intuitive understanding of what it means to say a policy has "high leverage."
