Ninth grade students participated in a Mock Trial in English class, based on the short story “The Tell Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe. Students attempted to prove that the narrator of the story was guilty of murder or innocent due to mental illness. They built their arguments using evidence from the story to prove their claims. They then acted out the trial in front of a jury of their peers and attempted to convince them of murder or insanity. This activity was meant to deepen their understanding of supporting claims with strong evidence. The same way that they are asked to write strong arguments for their essays, they needed to present strong arguments and evidence to the jury to sway the jury towards a guilty or innocent verdict.
Ms. Romias' AP Environmental Science class hosted our first annual Earth Week awareness week with a lunch time showcase of all things Earth Week in the MPR for students and staff to visit and learn about SVHS impact on our environment. Also, students and teachers were able to visit the BuildSMART exhibit to learn about environmentally sustainable building and construction options.
