Frankenstein Continues

As we have read Frankenstein, we have focused on answering two Essential Questions:

  • What happens when the desire for knowledge conflicts with obtaining it through violent or immoral acts?
  • How do we use literature to explore the moral and ethical dilemmas we face in life?

We have studied the Greek myth of Prometheus, Shelley's novel, and poetry, all which explore the nature and consequences of a person's actions and/or forbidden knowledge. Over the next three weeks, we will begin to explore connections real-world connections that will help us answer our essential questions in a new, meaningful way.

Total Registration Is Now Open!

Total Registration, the website we use to register students for AP exams, is open and can begin processing AP exam orders. TR allows for partial payments for the exams so payments can be spread out over several months rather than all money due at one time.

Exams will be $92 each.

The link is also found on the Advanced Placement page under the Counseling tab on the CHS home page. There is a quick link for CHS AP Exam Registration on the right side of the page.
