From Mar. 17 to Apr. 5, you will participate in a role-playing game entitled Reacting to the Past. You will assume the identity of a historical character and participate in a succession of diplomatic meetings between Europeans, colonists and Native Americans in 1757 at the height of the French and Indian War. This exercise will require you to apply the knowledge you acquired in class. Your grade will be based on your ability to achieve your character’s objectives and to act and think in a way that would be close to the historical reality. By then, you should have gained all the knowledge needed to take on this new persona.
