NT American Perspectives relives the Roaring '20's

On Friday, February 24, the American Perspectives class presented the 1920s. The class was divided into groups that covered separate topics that were influential to the time period. The topics covered were: Prohibition, Indiana in the 20s, Women in the 20s, Sports, Entertainment, Harlem Renaissance, and Technology. Each group was responsible for bringing their topic to life through an interactive presentation which included various props, timelines, literary elements, digital pieces, and whatever else they needed to enhance their presentations.

American Perspectives is a class that combines the study of English and United States History. Their emphasis of Project Based Learning (PBL) provides a unique learning opportunity for students. Scottsburg New Tech is a part of the New tech Network and features PBL as the main method of instruction.

Future Teachers Helping SES

This week Dual Credit Education Professions students have been working on multiple projects at SHS while their internship classrooms take on ISTEP. First, students began working on weighted vests after Mrs. McDonald, a teacher at SES, reached out to our class in search of students willing to help make them for her students. These vests have been found beneficial for some students in helping them calm down and focus. We were able to upcycle some vests from the sewing class era to help save costs for these vests which are priced for $50 - $150 on Amazon.

Additionally, students have been comparing research articles to classrooms observations relating to development. In class on Friday, students used clues, articles, and diagrams relating to the brain and learning to try to "breakout" of a Breakout EDU box. The bell rang with one lock yet to figure out.

Mitchell Prince sets Record

Congratulations to sophomore, Mitchell Prince, who broke the school record for 3-point baskets in Thursday's game against the sectional host, Salem Lions. Mitchell had tied the record earlier in the season by making eight three point baskets. He set the new mark when he hit the ninth shot late in last night's game to cut the lead; however, the Warriors ultimately lost a hard fought contest in the opening round of the Salem Sectional.

The school record was set by Warrior great, James Colwell.
