A case study: Bringing Rhode Island history into classrooms
The Education and Public Programs office of the Rhode Island Department of State (DOS) offers tours and programming for student groups at Rhode Island’s majestic state house in Providence. It also provides teaching materials and access to primary sources related to Rhode Island history and government for use by educators. After learning about the educational potential of role-plays, the DOS became interested in developing a historical role-playing experience aimed at high school students.
We worked with them to pick a topic that would provide compelling choices for participants. As a team, we decided to focus on the Dorr Rebellion, a fascinating and pivotal moment in Rhode Island history. After researching the event, we created the role-play content and media, and tested with teachers and students around R.I. The final version of the role-play is freely available to teachers throughout Rhode Island and beyond.
The Dorr Rebellion beta is now available for teachers to use on VOXPOP. When the final VOXPOP site launches this spring, the Rhode Island State House can also offer teachers access to the role-play and teaching materials through their website.

The concept was based on our belief that in today’s world, it is critical for kids to be able to build better relationships through communication, compromise, and shared learning. VOXPOP gives students the opportunity to practice these civic skills while learning common core content.
