The English courses at Rowland High School build and progress from 9th to 12th grade. Every year, students develop their reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills. Whether it is through whole class instruction, small groups, or independent work, teachers provide a variety of opportunities for students to enhance their skills in order to excel at RHS and post high school.
In Mr. Falk’s English 12 classes, students are currently reading Macbeth and experiencing Shakespearean language in class. At the conclusion of the play, students will perform portions of the play in groups or individually recite a soliloquy. Students enjoy dressing up, incorporating props, and embodying characters who are iconic on stage like the Witches who chant, “Double, double, toil and trouble.” A summative assessment like this evaluates students’ interpretive and analytical skills with the play, but also reinforces ELA listening and speaking standards.
In our AP Psychology class, students engaged in a Socratic seminar after completing the memory unit. The seminar addressed the question: "If technology allowed individuals to erase memories of specific events in their lives, such as traumatic experiences, should society allow this technology to be widely available?" This discussion was facilitated using the online discussion platform, Parlay. Parlay is an instructional platform designed to help teachers facilitate meaningful and inclusive classroom discussions. It ensures every student has a voice while also allowing the teacher to track student participation effortlessly.
Mr. Lohman begins each class by focusing on his students' mental health. He does this by dimming the lights and leading his students in a daily 5-10-minute meditation. This helps the students mentally prepare to engage in class discussions and other social studies activities.
World History Honors
Ms. Oertwig's class recently participated in a Berlin Conference Simulation. The intent was to practice argumentation and negotiation skills while emulating the conversations surrounding imperialism that Europeans had during the 1880s. There were advantages based on which team they were and the historical truth of the era.
IB Field Trip
IB Students spent the day learning about the Physics of roller coasters at Disneyland. They learned about how the roller coasters were designed, built, and run. The students especially enjoyed designing their own small scale roller coaster, building it, and testing it.
RHS' FBLA Awards
The RHS FBLA chapter wins big at the Southern Section Conference on Saturday, January 20th, held at Cal State Fullerton. The chapter received 4th place in overall awards out of 22 schools hosting over 700 competitors. RHS sent 64 students and received 44 awards for placing in the top 10 for individual events. Twenty students qualified in one or two events to compete at the state conference in April. The advisers, Mr. Jacoy and Mrs. Manookian are so proud of the chapter's accomplishment! They want to commend our chapter president, Allen Li, for all of his hard work, leadership, and inspiration he provides to our students in FBLA. He is a true Raider: A Thinker, Communicator, and Contributor.
