to the Past: Renewal — Summer 2022 Conference

Award Amount: $2500
Application Deadline: May 31, 2022
5 slots available
Reacting to the Past (RTTP) consists of elaborate
role-playing games informed by classic texts in the history of ideas.
In order to “win,” students must learn content deeply, write
effectively, read closely, speak persuasively, think critically,
conduct library research, collaborate, solve problems, and be
creative. Class sessions are run entirely by students; instructors
advise and guide students and grade their oral and written work. RTTP
games are used in numerous disciplines, from STEM to Women’s Studies,
and range from Athens 406 BCE to Title IX.
The theme for this conference is
in honor of a return to face-to-face learning (with precautions
of course). Attendees can choose from two different games out of
seven, or opt for a special workshop track aimed at preparing newbies
to teach with Reacting.
Apply for this grant via the FTLC Grant System.
