What is Role Playing?

In role playing, students act out characters in a predefined "situation".

What Is Its Purpose?

Role playing allows students to take risk-free positions by acting out characters in hypothetical situations. It can help them understand the range of concerns, values, and positions held by other people. Role playing is an enlightening and interesting way to help students see a problem from another perspective.
