Wilkes, John M.


This project involved running several pilot tests of international negotiation live role-playing games to see if these games were ready for dissemination to schools for use as extracurricular activities or as part of a class. Observation of the test runs indicates that these games are useful for consciousness-raising outside of a class and very engaging for students. They would have several advantages when integrated into a class. To facilitate the dissemination of the game material, I provide advice for people who would like to run these games in the future based on my test runs.
