Reacting to the Past Workshop at OAH Annual Meeting

Reliving History in the Classroom: "The Trial of Anne Hutchinson: Liberty and Intolerance in Puritan New England"
Saturday, April 18, 2015
8:00 AM - 12:00 PM
St. Louis, MO

Relive history by participating in a Reacting to the Past Workshop. Experience a mini-version of what can be a weekend, week, month, or semester-long learning project for your students. This three hour participatory session will demonstrate the various creative activities which motivate students to closely read, analyze, and cite texts and primary sources. Participants in this session will receive roles, a handbook, and reading materials after registration so that they can arrive ready to play the game. The session will close with a discussion of the value of the game as a history teaching strategy and an opportunity to ask questions about the incorporation of RTTP into your course of study or student life.

For complete information, see the OAH Annual Meeting Workshop Listing.
