English Activities

Student Author: Penelope North '21
 

During Honors English II, we have been working on drafting and revising Literary Analysis essays. One day in class, we walked around the track as a part of an engaging activity. We would walk a lap and talk about our ideas, then sit down and write everything we just talked through. Today, we spent our time near the Library rather than in a classroom. We posted our essays on the windows anonymously and everyone would peer edit. English this year has been a very engaging class, and I truly have learned a lot from it.

Family (History) Fun

Student Author: Abby Brand '20
 

We finally started our family history project in AP US History! First, we had to conduct an interview with a family member. The next step, the one we are on now, is researching a specific part of our family history we found out through our interviews. Our librarian has been very helpful in showing us how to find and cite sources while we conduct research in the library.
