Le jeu de rôle en classe d'histoire

Abstract : Role play is a pedagogical practice developed by some teachers, especially history and geography teachers. For this essay, a role play has been tested in a 1ère ES class, in order to analyze how this type of exercise helped pupils to learn new things. It was the role play Cuba 1962, simulating the Cuban crisis during the Cold War and the opposition between historical figures, who were interpreted by pupils. As pupils-actors, they had to take decisions mainly during the negotiations to resolve the Cuban crisis, and so, understand that men of the past were actors. These decisions determined the future of the characters they were performing. Thus, they were able to understand that men of the past had an unpredictable futur. This role play could simulate a different history and raise the realm of possibles, which could have happened in October 1962. Comparing after the game, their result and historical reality, pupils could observe the uncertainty of this past event, dependent on men's action.
