Students Participate in Leadership

post_pic_3Right now, in English classrooms at the Cambridge Rindge and Latin School our students are doing amazing work.

They are lawyers putting Lady Macbeth on trial, closely reading Shakespeare’s language to find evidence to prosecute or defend her. They are literary detectives, reading “The Great Gatsby” as if it were a murder mystery to discover F. Scott Fitzgerald’s hidden plot. They are media critics, analyzing the use of rhetorical appeals in advertisements and political speeches. They are investigators, examining contemporary research to determine whether technology is ultimately beneficial or detrimental to teenagers. They are poets, essayists, short story writers, bloggers, filmmakers and more.

On March 7, there is a hearing in the Massachusetts legislature considering a voter initiative that would repeal the Common Core in Massachusetts and send us back to math and English standards written over a decade ago.
