Dr. Diana Solomon is using Reacting to the Past games in her English 398 course, Majors Authors for Non-Majors. These games are set in the past and run by students who are informed by primary and secondary sources to better understand the role they have been given. In our game, each participant was given a role-sheet and quotes from Burke and Rousseau to inform their positions. SFU English is among the first departments in Canada to use these games which have been used in 350 departments in the USA.
Stay tuned, later in the semester we will update our blog to look at the great work being done in Dr. Solomon's class.
