Abstract

Reacting to the Past (RTTP) courses are role–immersion games that challenge students to engage in critical debate over contentious moments in history. RTTP courses have been applied to a wide variety of curricular areas and multiple disciplines, including First Year Seminars and Honors courses. Reacting has also been used in multiple disciplinary contexts including English, Global Studies, political science, and the natural sciences. This panel will discuss the faculty and student perspectives on the application of RTTP in two CLAS courses.
