Popejoy Schooltime Series - Always new worlds to explore

On Monday 5th November 2018, 9th and 10th Graders were taken to a theatrical presentation of 'The Call of the Wild'.   As part of Ms. Warren's Academic Vocabulary class, WHCS students experienced an hour long one man dramatic performance.   In class, performance follow-up included individual student reflection as well as visual depiction of the story unfolding. Content was aligned to CCSS and State Standards.  Please come and see displayed work on the walls of Room 3. About the Show: Jack London’s thrilling tale of courage and survival becomes a multimedia adventure mixing dynamic storytelling by a single actor with 180-degree surrounding projected illustrations adding scenic, artistic, and historical context to the story. Buck, a strong half St. Bernard and half sheepdog, is kidnapped from his life on a California estate and sent to work as a sled dog during the 1800s Klondike Gold Rush.
