Lisa McClain and Elizabeth Cook

Department of History, Department of English

Lisa McClain, History, and Elizabeth Cook, English, have just returned from New York where they attended the “Reacting to the Past” 17th Annual Faculty Institute. Reacting to the Past consists of elaborate role-playing games for the college classroom, set in the past, in which students are assigned roles informed by actual events and classic texts in the history of ideas. McClain and Cook will be part of a team working with the Center for Teaching and Learning to introduce this proven pedagogical tool at Boise State.
