Join us on Friday October 15, 2021 from 9-11 am via zoom (TBA)
Space is limited! RSVP below soon!
In this session, we will introduce you to Reacting to the Past, an immersive role-playing pedagogy in which students develop skills in critical thinking, persuasive writing, public speaking, leadership, and teamwork while wrestling with primary texts and important ideas. We will start by playing a mini-game, set at the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago, where delegates and protesters clash over civil rights, freedom of speech, and the war in Vietnam. Then we will talk about the benefits of role-playing and how you can adopt Reacting to the Past into classes across the curriculum, from sciences and engineering to literature and law.
