Co-Founder, Histrionix Learning Company
Rick Brennan, a public school teacher with 13 years experience, believes that classrooms are sacred spaces. In 2007, Brennan co founded Histrionix Learning Company with fellow teacher Jason Darnell. Histrionix provides fun, interactive game-based curriculum and teacher training to public, private and home schools that improve student achievement by engaging all learning styles, enhancing critical thinking skills and encouraging creative problem solving, which are the building blocks of thoughtful, twenty first students – and citizens. Last year, HISTORIA – the company’s curriculum aligned social studies simulation and strategy learning game – was featured in the PLAYMAKERS film series produced by Institute of Play and The Gates Foundation. Recently, Histrionix was hired by GlassLab to join the SimCityedu project team and write a teacher friendly, classroom ready curriculum catalog for SimCity.
