Summative Assessment Outline

By: Michaela Pelletier 10/29/13

1. Groups

The groups in the game were the Army and the Wealthy, Guerilla's, Guatemala Government, USA, and the Peasants. The Army and the Wealthy had the power in the first month and then the Guerilla's had the power in the second month. I was one of the peasants.

2. Power Shifting

In the first month the power did not really shift all that much, but the Army and the Wealthy has the most power still. In the second month the Guerilla's had thr power. In the third month no one had the power.

3. Cooperation and Conflict

In the first month of the stimulation there were some cooperation and there was conflict between the Army and the Wealthy and the Guerilla's. In the second month it was all cooperation and barely any conflict at all. And in the third month there was all cooperation between the USA and the Army and the Wealthy (made a treaty), but no conflict.

4. Role for the USA

The role for the USA in the first month ia that they really did not do anything from what the peasants (me) can see. In the second month the USA aere deciding to go with the Army and the Wealthy. And in the third month they made a treaty with the Army and the Wealthy.

5. Positive and Negative effect for a country (power shifting)

When a specific countries power has shifted it would either be positive or negative because it can either be a cooperation or a conflict it all depends on that country.

6. My life (Coorperation and Conflict)

The relationships I have in my life would be cooperation and conflict because half the time my family and I get along and then one day everything will change and we'll all be fighting and yelling at eachother. Also I would think my whole family has like 95% cooperation but the 5% conflict.
