Novel study helps English II students learn about the Holocaust
Ms. Mitchell’s 10th grade English class recently read The Book Thief by Markus Zusak which highlights a less glamorous side of urban life before and during the years of World War II and how the war took a toll on the Deutschland residents.
This story, narrated by Death, follows little Liesel Meminger when she arrives on Himmel Street, himmel meaning ‘heaven’ in German, and to her, it turns out to be quite the opposite.
Surrounded both literally and figuratively by Death himself and the effect he has on people, Liesel finds herself consistently encountering challenges posed by both the Fuhrer himself, who she believes took away her parents, and by beliefs often equated with her country that many of Germany’s inhabitants didn’t actually support.Full Story
Student projects incorporate globalization and technology
Mr. Shuler’s World History classes completed a European city project that incorporated globalization and technology.
Each student was assigned a famous European city to research and provide information about culture, customs, and interesting facts unique to that particular city.
Mrs. Waldrup, the Media Coordinator, worked with the students on how to use Britannica Online, ABC-Clio and CultureGrams to gather relative information, pictures, and videos for their project. Students also learned how to cite their sources using MLA format.Full Story
