Demo Games

Demo games are designed to introduce the Reacting pedagogy to instructors at professional conferences or faculty development events. They are designed to be administered by experienced Reacting faculty, so there are no instructor’s materials. They are NOT designed for use in the classroom, so we strongly discourage people from using them there.


Demo/Conference Games

Please note that these games are not designed for use in classrooms and will not offer the same experience as a full game.
