670 students who are local to San Diego will be interested in Games Workshop for Teachers
coming next month to the museum in Balboa Park.
"The San Diego Museum of Man is pleased to present a 2-day workshop on games taught by Dr. Wayne Saunders, educator, game historian and collector. This workshop is designed for adults, and will be of special interest to teachers of students in grades K-12. Dr. Saunders will explore the histories and evolutions of many games, and how they can be useful in
teaching history, cultural traditions, geography, and math. Game mechanics including memory, induction, deduction, recognition, alignment, ratios and probability will be illustrated using different games. Games will also be grouped geographically, with introductions to games from throughout the world. Participants will learn to play several games, and will receive instructions for making games for home or the classroom."
"The 2-day course will be held October 2nd and 9th from 8:30-5. The price is $65 for Museum of Man members, and $80 for non-members. Teachers who would like to receive one unit of credit for the course through California State University at San Marcos must attend both days and write a short paper. (There is an additional charge of $65 for receiving the credit,
paid directly to the university.) There will be a minimum of 15 people in the class and a maximum of 40. Youth over 16 may enroll in the class accompanied by a parent or other adult. Morning refreshments will be served. There will be an hour-long break for lunch each day. Lunches can be brought and eaten in the classroom or in Balboa Park. Please call
619-239-2001 to reserve your place, and get ready to play."
