Georgia College Students React to Historic Events

While Schaller’s students attempt to prevent and make history-changing decisions in Terrell Hall, 17 students in Georgia College’s Arts and Sciences Building sift through Reformation materials for Dr. Deborah Vess’ Reacting game, “Henry VIII and the Reformation Parliament.”

The setting is Paris, France, 1791.

The debate is whether to remove soldier Marquis de Lafayette as head of the French army or execute King Louis XVI.

As street crowds riot for more rights and representation in government, the common language is French.

Georgia College senior Sasha Rojas and 11 other students are the first in the nation to speak only French while play Reacting to the Past, a powerful role-playing pedagogy of interactive historical games.

“Being overwhelmed doesn’t even begin to describe my role,” said Rojas, a French major playing King Louis XVI. “I’m trying not to be overthrown and most importantly beheaded.”
