Summary
"'The Constitutional Convention of 1787: Constructing the American Republic' brings to life the debates that most profoundly shaped the American republic. As representatives to the Convention, students must investigate the ideological arguments behind possible structures for a new government and, together, craft a new constitution. to make their arguments, students will draw on core texts by political thinkers such as John Locke, Montesquieu, Thomas Paine, Thomas Jefferson, and John Adams. 'Reacting to the Past' is an award-winning series of immersive role-playing games that actively engage students in their own learning. Students assume the roles of historical characters and practice critical thinking, primary source analysis, and argument, both written and spoken. Reacting games are flexible enough to be used across the curriculum, from first-year general education classes and discussion sections of classes to capstone experiences, intersession courses, and honors programs."--Back cover
