An Alien among Us: A Diversity Game
The game described in this booklet is designed to broaden the players' perspectives on human diversity and to help them appreciate and value people of different backgrounds. In the game, players are asked to select the best candidates for an interplanetary mission on the basis of certain characteristics. Making the selections reveals stereotypes and attitudes held by the players. The chapters of the game guide are: (1) "Overview"; (2) "Procedure"; (3) "Debriefing"; (4) "Some Expected Outcomes"; (5) "References and Resources for Debriefing Simulations"; and (6) "Game Materials." (Contains 11 references.) (SLD)
