Our representative historian, John Majewski, has roped each of the student discussion groups into pretending that they constitute a "Royal Spin Commission," assigned with countering the arguments made in Thomas Paine's revolutionary writings. The students have tackled the job with relish. John steps in after each student group's presentation to point out how their arguments in fact reflect arguments made at the time. It's proven both effective and great fun.
