Panther Update

Week of 12/14

In the Classroom

Last week I was able to observer students in Mass Media working on an inanimate project video. How difficult is that?? Making an inanimate object have feelings and thoughts. Excellent "outside the box" thinking.


Many of our Tenth Graders are beginning Lord of the Flies. Discuss with your student this text and the importance of symbolism in writing. Research the post-World War II climate of the text as it gives more insight to the novel.


Over break take the time to have an authentic learning experience; take a nature walk, go to a museum, read the latest novel you have been putting off. Learning is an experience which takes place each day; both within and outside the classroom walls.
