Honors Course
This class uses elaborate role-playing games to learn about important moments in history and the political, religious, economic, and social forces surrounding them. Immersing oneself in a role allows one to recognize that history is not predetermined but is contingent on individual motivations and actions. Students read primary texts, write research papers, and give speeches and engage in debates to sway others to support their causes. Like all Intellectual Traditions courses, reacting teaches students to read critically, write and speak persuasively, and collaborate with others in a truly experiential and community-building way.
