The RIVER BASIN MODEL delineates an entire regional system and its interaction with water one of its subsystems. Presented is a gaming-simulation, City Model, designed to provide college-level social science students with an educational technique which reverts to a more personalized education (computer assisted laboratory) and at the same time allows society to remain undisturbed by the learning process. In the model, participants are decision-makers in one of three sectors: economic, social or governmental. A starting scenario briefly describes problems, issues, growth characteristics, housing, schools, etc. in the simulated metropolitan area. The computer records participant decisions for each round and regularly provides printouts showing the interaction of decisions and their influence during the run. (Author)
