Role playing: Renaissance
In Social Studies class, we got to do a role playing at the time of the renaissance. Each individual would get a job, for instance a tailor or a woodcarver. We would be given a random situation, from meeting different students(the people playing the role play) to making decision that would help you make money. The role play was taken in the city of Florence, a well known city during the Renaissance. Many guilds existed in the Renaissance, helping each other's for benefits. In this role play I was a woodcarver/ stone mason. I started with no job, so I would go out to the market and look for one. Then I saw a sad looking mad, I felt worried for him, so I decided to talk to him. The guy had some issues with his business and needed my help to reinforce his work place. I was willing to help but denying was the answer for me. I wanted to look for more. As I was walking by I saw the same man, it had to be some sort of destiny. So I walked up to him and ask for a reconsider for the job he offered. He replied with a delightful yes. I would get 40% of his income for running a business with him and fixing his damaged materials. This was my part of the role-play. In the end, the role play taught me that life hits you unexpectedly, you either take the risk or not. The role play was a really cool way to learn what was life at the Renaissance like by reenacting the guilds and the workers at that time.
