Welcome to H-SHGAPE, the online forum of the Society for Historians of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era and one of the founding networks on H-NET. H-SHGAPE seeks to encourage the study of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era through its network and online resources.
H-SHGAPE was originally developed and maintained by Dr. Patrick Reagan, who deserves credit for assembling its wealth of information. Thanks are also due to Dr. Katherine Osburn (Editor-in-Chief, 2000-2016) and to the numerous GAPE scholars whose contributions in the form of syllabi, bibliographies, essays, and reviews make H-SHGAPE an invaluable resource for students and teachers.
Hi all --
I have used one of Barnard's "Reacting to the Past" games on Greenwich Village in the 1910s, and it was a tremendous success among students. I can't recommend it enough. This type of simulation games takes a few classes out of the syllabus so I don't know if they are appropriate for the survey, but they worked excellent for a class on industrial America. They have a few games that can be relevant to GAPE, and their platform is easy to use and understand.
