In the Classroom - Escape the Room

Carolyn Borman, Rebecca Nelson
Assessment doesn't always take the form of a test as seen in Rebecca Nelson's 9th grade English class. To test what they learned from their study of the first part of The Great Gatsby, they had an escape the room experience. 

They worked in pairs in a timed challenge to decipher F. Scott Fitzgerald's use of figurative language, demonstrate their comprehension of characters and settings, analyze several excerpts from the book, and interpret a scene.
Earlier in February, the students learned about the Jazz Age and Harlem Renaissance, providing them with further context for America in the Roaring Twenties. That one-class immersion included a close look at several poems by Langston Hughes, helping set the stage for our next unit: Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God, which will be our focus in April.

See the happy escapees!
Educating and inspiring gifted students to think as individuals and to engage as a community with compassion for each other and this world.
