Complex Systems Connection: Incorrect High-Leverage Policies/Short and Long Term Conflicts: Financial Planning Life Scenarios-Few things are as relevant to high school students as how they spend their money. The Robinsons and the Meltons are two families that earn the same income, live in the same neighborhood, are of the same age, and have two children each. Yet the Robinsons are six times wealthier than the Meltons. Students use systems thinking tools to analyze these real-life scenarios to determine key principles to personal wealth.
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.
