      AP English: This week the students are presenting their Rotary Four Way Test speeches to the class, and then they will present to a panel of teacher judges in order to determine which three students will go on to the district competition with the Batavia Rotary. The students have done an excellent job breaking down the Four Way Test and applying it to their topics. Soon we will be moving on to a poetry project and Macbeth!

      CP English 11: We are finishing up our unit on Contemporary American Literature with a poetry presentation. Now that we have covered the major elements of figurative language, the students will be able to show off their skills by "teaching" the class about a poem they chose from the remainder of the unit. Next quarter we will be moving away from the periods of literature into a research paper and Hamlet.

    • Matt Ritchey - Math/Science Teacher

      Physical Science: Students are currently working through a unit on properties of matter. They have completed labs regarding the density of various materials and the identification of different types of matter. Previously in January, we completed an Electricity unit. Students began by investigating static electricity in multiple forms. Students learned how to use Ohms law and calculate power, as we constructed circuits in parallel and series with computer simulations. This all lead up to a challenge involving Snap Circuits (a kit for constructing circuits). Students had to complete two teacher directed challenges involving LED lights and variable resistors in parallel and series. Finally, they created their own challenge for their peers to complete.

      Algebra 1: Students finished a unit on system of equations in January, where they solved systems with graphing, elimination, and substitution. Currently, Students are learning how to multiply various types of polynomials. This will lead into a few of chapters of factoring where we will end the year with graphing parabolas and exponential functions.

    • Joy Allmyer - English Teacher

      English 9 students just wrapped up the third quarter with their Greek mythology unit. In that unit they learned how to find book ​and internet sources, quote from those sources, and write a research paper. They have the PARCC test coming up March 10-13. Next we will begin our unit on the Holocaust in which we'll begin reading Night by Elie Wiesel.

    • Ms. Latham - English 10 Teacher

      As the third quarter is coming to a close, CP English 10 students are in full review to prepare for the upcoming OGT assessments. English 10 students have been working on drafting outlines to organize their ideas prior to writing a response to extended responses, or essay style questions. Classes also discussed and practiced providing analysis and commentary into writing to ensure adequate evidence is provided within a written response. In class, we have examined rubrics and sample responses to prepare for the OGT writing assessment. Currently, CP English 10 students are reviewing poems and utilizing the SOAPSTone strategy to analyze poetry in greater detail. We are discussing figurative and literal meanings of poems and will be examining real-world applications in terms of how our life is influenced by poetry today. During the week of OGTs, students will be viewing To Kill a Mockingbird and examining the plot-line of that literary classic. As fourth quarter opens, students will examine the Salem Witch Trials as we prepare to read The Crucible. This unit will be filled with acting out scenes, making historical connections, and creative projects. I look forward to an exciting conclusion to this school year with this sophomore class!
