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.

Complex Systems 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.

  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.
