Students Love Reacting to the Past!


We are really proud of the work and creativity the students in our inaugural Honors-Reacting to the Past course displayed last semester and thank Dr. Anna Zeide​ for launching the course.
Reacting to the Past is an immersive, historical simulation pedagogy that puts students directly into the time period under study. Students are assigned roles informed by classic texts, and lead class sessions in game play. OSU’s first Reacting to the Past class was a History Honors seminar in the Fall of 2017, which played the game “Greenwich Village, 1913.” Students engaged with debates about woman suffrage, labor activism, and bohemian ideals in the context of a New America. See for yourself!
Don't miss our next Honors-Reacting to the Past course in Fall 2018 taught by Dr. Holly Karibo MWF 11:30-12:20.
