Tali et Tituli: Roleplaying with Wheelock

Mitchell Parks

Knox College

Switching to the grammar/translation textbook Wheelock’s Latin provided me with the freedom, and students with the skills, to engage in a long-term roleplaying game. Students generated Roman personae, which gave them a sense of individual ownership and agency, and collectively went on an adventure that required them to interpret authentic texts using cultural knowledge and engage in team-based composition exercises.
