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 website, games available,
and article in Chronicle
of Higher Education (featuring GVSU).
