Reacting to the Past Workshop

April 21, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Please join us for a workshop to learn more about Reacting to the Past (RTTP) and how it has transformed the classroom experience!


Reacting to the Past consists of elaborate games, set in the past, in which students are assigned roles informed by texts in the history of ideas. Class sessions are run entirely by students; instructors advise and guide students and grade their oral and written work. The activity seeks to draw students into the past, promote engagement with big ideas, and improve intellectual and academic skills. The RTTP curriculum has been implemented by faculty at hundreds of colleges and universities in the US and abroad since 2011.
