Simulation
A.Meaning : There is little consensus on the terms used in the role playing and simulation literature. However, simulation is a broader concept than role playing. For example, views simulations as complex, lengthy and relatively inflexible, but role playing as quite simple, brief and flexible. Simulations simulate real life situations, while in role playing the participant is representing and experiencing some character type known in everyday life. Simulations always include an element of role play.

B.Procedure :

Procedure involves a step-by-step guide to the activity. There are basically six steps of procedure for Simulation : Preliminary activity, A model dialogue, Learning to perform the simulation with the help of role play , Listening to recordings of native speakers performing , (if any ) Follow-up, and Repeating the sequence. Follow-up indicates activities that are done after the activity, perhaps as homework. Remarks may be of general interest or may be warnings about special difficulties that may arise. Variations can be used with different types of classes or different levels. C.Strong Point : 1) Simulation is entertaining & motivate the students. 2) Simulation can increase the self-confidence of hesitant students ,because simulation activities, they will have a different role and do not have to speak for themselves, which means they do not have to take the same responsibility. 3) students can develop and practice new language and behavioral skills in a relatively nonthreatening setting.

Weak Point : 1) Simulation is require real and complete events . 2) Teacher must understand the knowledge level that students bring to the scene and place close attention to the introduction of experiential exercises so that the student does not become discouraged , this will make a simulation difficult and threatening.

Lesson Plan of Simulation

Subject : English

Grade : Grade 2

Time : 3 hours .

Topic : Students Simulation with Selling Food /Drinks At a Food Stall In A School Party . ( With Target Language Question & Short Answer Form )

Learning Objective :
1.

To develop and practice new target language and behavioral skills in a relatively non-threatening & pratical form setting . Simulation can increase the self-confidence of hesitant students.

2.

Contents ( Target Language) :


1.How Much ( How much is it ? ) It is/They are ..Baht. 2.How Many do you want ? 3.Students learn numbers in price .

Activities :
1.Set up food/drinks stall selling food in a school party. 2.Customers are school teachers, parents & school students . 3.Few groups of Students simulate the selling market situation as seller of food /drink stall & sell food to the customers. They have to speak Target Language English to the customers .

Materials :1.Food /drink selling stall at a specific location in the school. 2.Actual money ( Thai Bath ) 3.Material of food /drink.

Measurement & Evaluation :1.Teachers in charge to monitor simulation group of the students . The points given to the groups are 5( Excellent ) ,4 ( Good ) ,3( Fair ) 2( Average ) 1 ( Poor ). The groups speak 100% English during the Simulation work will be given 5 points, & the rest of the points will be given accordingly.
