Re: Teaching the early republic online?

Dear Eileen (if I may), I use Reacting (or RTTP) frequently in a number of different kinds of classes. It's a powerful pedagogy, and I really love it (so do my students). For the Early Republic, the American Revolution game is quite good. I haven't played the Constitution game, but I have done the short game "The Eleventh Pillar," which is about the New York Ratification Convention.

Re: Teaching the early republic online?

Dear Eileen,

I have not personally used RTTP, but I have two colleagues (both of whom teach various classes in world history) who use them extensively, and very successfully. They are currently talking about ways to adapt these simulations to remote learning, as it is likely that we're going to teach most of our classes that way in the fall. So I can't give you personal experience, but I can give you an indirect vote of confidence -- my colleagues and students really like using these games.
