English teacher, Ms. Brown and Blended Learning Coach, Amanda Venturella constructed a VR learning experience for students exploring the African savannah to better analyze The Veldt by Ray Bradbury. It provided an excellent tool for seeing how authors of science fiction use technology to comment on human behavior and a fun way to consider how a book written in 1950 is still relevant today.

Students in AP Language and AP US History debate the role of the individual or structures/institutions/groups in making historical changes. Josh Hollowell said, "preparing for the event helps me understand the voting rights act more and preparing for the debate allowed me to gain a better understanding of the perspectives" and his partner in debate Oscar Marquez added, "I think doing all the research and preparing for the speech was an experience and I enjoyed learning more about the civil rights movement and what led to the passing of the voting rights act." What is certain is that the opportunities provided by teachers Mrs. Dunbar and Mr. Turner are encouraging students to dig deep and learn more. #elevate!
