For this week's throwback Thursday (even though it's posting a day late), we go to academics from 1991. In addition to languages, students competed in forensics and journalism competitions.
English 1 students created editorial cartoons as part of their introduction to graphic novels. Here are some of their creations.
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.
Freshman assassin, a game played while reading Richard Connell's "The Most Dangerous Game," begins Thursday at dawn.
