Atlantis: Role Playing Simulations for the Study of American Politics (Nelson-Hall series in political science) by W. Robert Gump, James Woodworth



This book is a unique instructional device. It gives students roles as political decistion makers as they work together to build a mythical nation. Each simulation is designed to fill two class periods and to involve all students, not just those who usually participate. Students experience the tensions of a democracy and the conflicting interests of different regions. Atlantis gives students the experience of legislators as they struggle with difficult issues like creating a constitution and freedom of speech. This unusual text promotes leadership and fosters understanding in a way that students have repeatedly described as fun.
