Update — Grading Graffiti

On Saturday, “06880” reported on an innovative Staples final exam.  AP English teacher Julia McNamee’s students had 2 hours to research, then solve, the school’s graffiti problem.

Two groups created — in that very tight time frame — compelling videos.  Click here and here for 2 great examples of teamwork, technology, clear thinking — and positive peer pressure.

(A tip of the hat to Staples media specialist Julia Roberts — no, not that one — who assisted with the class.)

    Miss Mac has been my teacher all the way since middle school. She truly is a revolutionary with her unique teaching style and strong affinity to educate. She is undoubtedly one of the few teachers at Staples to possitively influence my life in one way or another. I sleep better at night knowing that she still teaches.
