Essential English Experiences Expanded Through their English classes, freshmen learned the basics of speech and proper usage for different types of words. Introduction to the Benson library was the first project of the year, which was followed by dictionary drills and proiects which would require use of the card catalog. Learning how to write proper letters was another topic studied. Work from English textbooks accompanied this and other lessons. Freshmen spent three to four weeks in a study of poetry, and various books were read by classes throughout the year. Frosh English teachers include Mr. Dan Robinson, Mr. William Hughes, Mr. Victor Mazzocco, Mrs. Marthiel Miller, Mrs. Norma Faulkner, and Mr. Donald Wilson. European Hieiery Highlights Fresh SS Curriculum Freshmen at Benson were enrolled in a one year social studies class, which included a study of Europe and its famous people, events, and historic dates. International affairs were also discussed, along with the United States role in European affairs. The migration of primitive people throughout Europe was first studied. This led to the time of the Crusades, and nobility-led nations. Models of castles and houses associated with this period of time were on display at Tech Show. Gradually the studies came to the World War period, and how each war was fought. Africa was also a topic of discussion. Students learned the names of African countries, and studies were made of primitive Indian tribes which once inhabited the continent. Frosh SS teachers included Mrs. Patricia Kosderka, Mr. Victor Mazzocco, Mrs. Marthiel Miller, and Mrs. Mereida Wann. TOP LEFT: Dana Jensen C91 concentrates on reading assignment.

Music Ie Great Experience Operating out ofa well worn wooden portable and the dressing rooms of the stage, the choral and music groups of Benson created a lot of professional music which credited the school iust as much as winning athletic teams or contest winning students in other academic areas. The elite group of the choral section was the Am- bassadors. This group was composed of a select group from the larger choral group and one of their functions was to appear at assemblies in the various grade schools of the city. Another top ranked group was the newly formed Stage One group which was created to appear mainly before business groups, at luncheons and at other functions where a small group is desired. Choral director is Mr. Roger Hanson. Benson's Band achieved much recognition at the '76er, and the Tech Show, Headed by Mr. Harold Rowe the band stressed perfection and had several students attend com- petitions. Part of the band was the Pep Band composed of band students who performed at athletic events when the regular band was not in attendance. Their purpose was to aid the rally in bolstering spirit. Probably the most important event for both of these groups was the Winter Christmas Concert and the Spring Concert. ln these two shows the bands and choral groups are the show. Often special compositions or unusual music selections are presented. TOP RIGHT : Bill Severe il ll adds the sound of his horn at the ap- propriate place.
