Learning OutcomeAn opportunity to experience consequences from student’s own choices with a simple game-style simulation, complete with interim decision points, for ultimate yes/no decision to meth offer. Decision points will offer choices that, when answered, software will continually analyze, categorize, and predict an ultimate outcome.

Outline of Interaction - 2• Title of Simulation: “Dude! It’s morning!”• Scene #1 – Animated clock with feet rings and vibrates visibly; then feet pull away and start walking down a hallway (sounds of heavy walking and yawning), reaches bathroom door– Click on DECISION POINT:• Scene #2 – Feet stop at refrigerator door, door opens, displayed are orange juice, milk cartons, and soda pop cans--Click on DECISION POINT:• Scene #3 – Feet walk to pantry, door opens, displayed are cereal boxes and candy bars—Click on DECISION POINT:
Outline of Interaction - 3• Scene #4 – Feet walk to backpack with books spilling out on the floor—Click on DECISION POINT:• Scene #5 – Feet walking outside, sound of cell phone ringing and voice: “Yo!” “I dunno” “Yeah, maybe” “I dunno, man!” “Later”, feet stop at road sign— Click on DECISION POINT:• Scene #6 – Feet encounter another set of feet, voice: “Hey, man, try some—it’ll wake ya’ up good!” “Nah, it won’t hurt ya’-it’s cool, man!” “Just put this under your tongue” “Noone‘ll even know, man!” “You’ll be down with that math test-no sh__!” “Hey, dude-this one’s on me.” “Just remember who made ya’ feel good and look smart!”—Click on DECISION POINT:
Outline of Interaction - 4• Scene #7 – Feet walk into classroom with sound of school bell ringing, paper with “TEST” displayed, sounds of pencil scratching on paper, scene concludes with feet leaving classroom—Click on OUTCOME link.• Scene #8 – OUTCOME (generated by software) displays one of several scenarios (three presented here): • Feet walk into home, paper “test” with good grade flutters to floor, sound of student “That dude was bogus” “I aced that test without any of that meth sh__!” • Feet walk into home, paper “test” with bad grade flutters to floor, sound of student “That meth stuff really worked, man!” “I mean, it blew my mind!” “What? Bad grade?” “Who cares, man, I feel great!” “Think I might try that sh__ again for the next test!” “Think I’ll just ring up that dude and score me some more for tomorrow.” “What?” “Nah, I won’t get hooked.” “It’s just some cold pill or somethin’.”
Outline of Interaction - 5– OUTCOME cont’d • Feet walk into home, paper “test” with good grade flutters to floor, sound of student “Oh, wow!” “Look at that – a ‘C’, guess that dude was right, meth did clear my head for that test!” “I feel kinda’ weird, though, like lightning shooting through my head...my whole body, and I’m so uptight...like I’m gonna’ blow up or somethin’.” “Must be catchin’ a cold...that dude didn’t say anything about any freaky side effects.” “It’s just the test...and my parents pressuring me to do good in math.” “That’s all...man, I wish my head would stop spinning!” Cell phone ring sound, “Hey, man, whassup?” “Yeah, man, it was great, I got a ‘C’!” “Yeah, like cool, huh?” “Hey, dude!” “I feel kinda’ weird...” “Truth? Another hit will make me feel better?” “Cool, dude...yeah, I’ll be right over...”
Outline of Interaction - 6• Scene #9 – Brief clips of: Feet at home on an ottoman in front of TV, relaxed; feet in emergency room, on a table, shivering; feet looking seasick, walking out the door, etc. to match outcome version.• Scene #10 – Maze of decision points and possible outcomes, with student’s choices’ path highlighted, other outcomes each in different colors, legend displaying % of right vs. % of wrong vs. % of indecisive choices and their matching outcome color. Narrative by teacher: short discussion of choices, outcomes, and possibilities when choices are made differently.

Decision Point #1 A. Stop in the bathroom to shower, brush teeth, comb hair (sounds of shower) B. Pass by the bathroom (sounds of feet walking on wood floor) C. Pretend to go in, but don’t clean up (sounds of walking, stopping to pause, then walking down hall)Select one of the above and click on Next to continue simulation Next
Decision Point #2 A. Choose orange juice (orange juice leaps out of refrigerator, disappears as gulping sounds play) B.
