Mapping Out the Hero’s Journey

Mapping Out the Hero’s Journey thumbnail177647

Eighth graders at Nesaquake Middle School are learning about the hero’s journey via different texts and hands-on lessons. As part of their unit on the challenges of heroism in the SpringBoard curriculum, students in Ms. Rella’s English class have been doing different activities related to the hero’s journey.

The hero’s journey is a classic story structure example that involves a hero going on an adventure, learning a lesson and returning home transformed. In one activity, the students learned how to apply the hero’s journey to a familiar story. Working in small groups, they mapped out the steps of the journey and created illustrative posters. In another lesson, the students used a four corners activity to analyze quotes connected to the challenges of heroism.

District Launches Intramural Sports Program

District Launches Intramural Sports Program thumbnail176740
In an effort to keep its students engaged in sporting activities despite the current restrictions for student-athletes, the district has launched an intramural sports program for those in grades 6-12.

The six-week program will begin on Oct. 5 and run through Nov. 13 and is open to any students who wish to participate. The intramural sports program will be offered for most of the sports held during the fall season. At the high school level, sports include: girls and boys soccer, boys golf, football, field hockey, girls tennis and boys and girls cross-country, girls and boys volleyball. Middle school programs will include boys and girls soccer, field hockey, football, boys and girls cross-country and girls tennis.

According to Patrick Smith, coordinator of physical education, health, athletics and nurses, many of the coaches who were slated to head the fall sports teams will be overseeing the programs. “Students on a hybrid or fully remote program are eligible to participate,” Mr. Smith said. “This program will be a rewarding substitute for our usual interscholastic program.”

Mr. Smith added that the program will be run safely with social distancing requirements in place. The sports will focus on teamwork, skill development and conditioning and will not include any game play.
