The Trial of Anne Hutchinson: Liberty, Law, and Intolerance in Puritan New England and Victory or Death! The Consultation of 1835 and the Texas War for Independence will both be featured at the “Reacting to the Past” Regional Conference at Schreiner University (Kerrville, Texas), April 25-27, 2014. “Reacting to the Past” consists of elaborate games, set in the past, in which students are assigned roles with “victory objectives” informed by seminal texts in the history of ideas. Reacting to the Past was honored with the 2004 Theodore Hesburgh Award (funded by TIAA-CREF) as the nation’s outstanding pedagogical innovation in undergraduate teaching and learning. It has been featured in the Chronicle of Higher Education, New York Times, and elsewhere.
This workshop will introduce faculty to the new game in development, Victory or Death! The Consultation of 1835 and the Texas War for Independence, by William Woods, Dean of School of Liberal Arts at Schreiner University, as well as to The Trial of Anne Hutchinson: Liberty, Law, and Intolerance in Puritan New England, part of our published series.
