Potter wins freshman assassin game

An annual tradition for the freshman English class continued as the students studied “The Most Dangerous Game,” by Richard Connell. The class read the short story about a rich hunter stocking his private island with the most dangerous animal: humans. For the related assassin game, each student was assigned another student to ‘hunt’ and clip with a clothespin, or to eliminate with a black spot on an item they are holding. Freshman English teacher Brendan Praeger has had his classes play the game for eight years. “When I student taught, the whole school played a game of assassin and I thought that it would be a fun way to add to the lesson,” Praeger said.
