RPG system: LARP
Come play an edularp currently in development as part of an early world history curriculum. This game uses the development and spread of early hominin as a way of teaching historical processes and facts along with basic research practices and scientific methods of inquiry. At least in the USA, this integration of research practices along with historical facts is lacking in the majority of history curriculum at the undergraduate level, and yet, ability to critically evaluate primary and secondary historical data is precisely the skill set we often want our students to develop through historical study. While this game lies within a larger curricula, and we will only have time to play one game, during the game debrief we will briefly reference the other games in the curricula and how they are integrated.
