Scavenger Hunts in Grauer High School English Classes

From Louise Hyland, English Teacher:

As a culmination of our Summer Reading Unit, Grauer 10th and 12th grade English students ventured out on an educational scavenger hunt last week. The 10th grade summer book assignment was "Deep: Freediving, Renegade Science, and What the Ocean Tells Us About Ourselves" by James Nestor, and the 12th grade summer book assignment was "Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood" by Trevor Noah.

The scavenger hunt involved seeking answers on topics found in the summer readings in subjects such as Math, History, Science, Government, and Music. Given that faculty members could only be approached by one group, strategic planning was necessary before the groups began the hunt. Answers were compared and researched at the end of the scavenger hunt, resulting in expanded learning opportunities.

This activity was a perfect example of the creative opportunities for learning offered everyday at The Grauer School.
