Thursday was the last Public History class. Since we have stressed iterative design all semester, it seemed appropriate for the students to give us feedback on the class and the new assignment. We got some good insights for future tweaks. All in all, the class was a learning experience for students and instructors alike... and it will be better next time.
Pictured are the brave students who stuck the class out along with their games. I am genuinely impressed with the work and creativity they put into the class and the games. They created a variety of games exploring different aspects of the war. They recreated the Battle of Gettysburg, home life, railroads, the march through Georgia.
