Our friends and partners at The Democracy Commitment (TDC) invite you to participate in their Inaugural Immersive Civic Learning Institute. TDC is a non-partisan national organization dedicated to advancing democracy and citizenship in our community colleges.  Reacting to the Past (RTTP) consists of elaborate games, set in the past, in which students are assigned roles informed by classic texts in the history of ideas. This immersive pedagogy enhances history and political science courses and features civic skill building which is embedded in the games. Pioneered by historian Dr. Mark C. Carnes, RTTP has been implemented at over 350 colleges and universities in the U.S. and abroad.

College ​faculty and administrators ​are ​invited ​to ​register ​for ​this Immersive Civic Learning Institute ​presented by TDC’s ​new Civic ​Leadership ​Academy ​in coordination with the Reacting ​Consortium (RC).

Conference ​participants ​will ​learn how to engaged students in civic learning & skill building using ​the ​RTTP ​pedagogy in this intensive ​two-day ​workshop ​of ​either ​”Bacon’s ​Rebellion, ​1676-1677: ​Birth ​of ​American ​Institutional ​Racism,” ​or ​”Chicago, ​1968: ​The ​Democratic ​National ​Convention.” ​ Register today and share with your colleagues.
