Using the U.S. Constitution as Evidence

US Constitution
Brent Calfee uses pocket Constitution to cite sources for essay. 
Right: During their poster project and presentation of an amendment to the U.S. Constitution advanced students are required to add something to their poster or presentation that is "outside of the box."  As part of Raamiah Gaddis' presentation of the 19th amendment she recruited fellow classmates to make flapper style skirts and dance to a diddy to represent the time period in which the 19th amendment was passed known as the Roaring Twenties.
Left; As part of their nine week exam senior government students had to write a comprehensive essay about the principles that are the foundation of American government.  Students use their personal pocket Constitution to quote from the articles and amendments in the constitution as primary source evidence of those principles and then go on to explain how the later amendments more fully expanded those principles.

Advanced Students Go Above and Beyond

19th Amendment
Brynli Mitchell and Raamiah Gaddis recreate the flapper style and dance of the Roaring Twenties.

Ninth Grade World History Students Simulate the Columbian Exchange

Columbiana Exchange
As part of their study of European colonization of the Americas, ninth grade World History students simulated the Columbian Exchange outside where the two hemispheres were painted on the grass.  Students brought real items that were exchanged between the two hemispheres such as tomatoes, potatoes, corn, squash, peaches, and pineapples. Some students reenacted the part of Native Americans, whereas other students reenacted the part of the Europeans who crossed the Atlantic Ocean to come to the Americas bringing new foods with them as well as taking foods from the Americas back to the eastern hemisphere. 

Central High School is pleased to announce the September Students of the Month. Students are nominated and chosen each month by their teachers.  Click each picture below to learn more about each of our outstanding students.
