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. See RTTP websitegames available, and article in Chronicle of Higher Education (featuring GVSU).
