Summary

This monograph provides a format for teaching about busing, either to prospective teachers or to students, on all levels of the educational process. A model is developed that can be used by students themselves in the development of methods of improving human relations and studying problems of democracy and American life. The model presented here is that of a game that has been formulated to study the implications and effects of a busing policy. It involves a definition of the actors (those people who participate in the decisions), the rules by which these people may interact, the objective parameters (the "facts") that "set the stage" for the interactions and the attitude parameters (the "emotions"), that govern the people's feelings. Hopefully the effect of "The Busing Game" will be to explain the reasoning behind the formulations of the parameters so as to facilitate the use of this tool in teaching and learning. Originally the model was done as a project for a "Foundations of Education" class in which the instructor stated that if the students were to give presentations, the presentations should be fun and involve everyone in the class. This forced the author to look into the busing question, and the social decision-making process as a whole, to examine the parameters, both objective and subjective, and to determine the roles and attitudes of the players in such a drama.
