ThIS BOOK IS DEDICATED TO THE p POSE OF HELPING. EACH OF US MORe)fULLY APPRECIATE THIS grea1- LAND OF THE FREE AND HONE OF THE BRA Language Arts 1. Mrs. Chandler ' s Language Arts class was reading The Pigman when the cameraman stopped by and caught Kay Olry summarizing a number of chapters for the benefit of those who had been absent. Seated are R. 1 Kelly Turner, Shelby Blackburn, Dennis Lung, Jeff Crabill R. 2 Lisa Stephenson, Debra Pontius, Sharon Minich R. 3 Barbara Taylor, Hector Rodri- quez R. 4 Debbie Mitchell, Larry Setzer, Tom Madison. In Language Arts Class (8th grade) students learn or review many phases of English-structure of the sentence, spelling, punctuation, oral and written expression, and last but not least, read- ing for understanding and interpretation. 2. In 9th grade English class students learn to read, write, speak, and listen more effectively through various literature units. By sharpening these communication skills students should be better prepared to think, reason, and communicate in high school and daily life. Students learn to use their language to their best advantage. 3. Ray Powers, Pat Murphy, Lorraine Glover prepare media used to help students appreciate the story " Man Without A Coun- try " in Language Arts 8. 4. Larry Setzer, Mark Mugg, Kevin Walker, Melissa Mayes, and Mrs. Dick are intent in an evaluation phase of the reading program. Students in Reading Improvement wait their turns to get individualized reading lessons cor- rected. Reading Improvement is a one-semester course for 8th and 9th grade students who wish to improve their reading skills in the areas of vocabulary, comprehension, and speed. The class is completely individualized as students daily select their practice lessons and skill builders from a wide variety of materials. " If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading, or do things worth writing. " Languages 1. Spanish. Students enrolled In Spanish at FJH learn more than just another language. They immerse themselves in another culture so that they are made aware of cultures different from their own. R. 1 Hans Wallace, Tim Wilkerson, David McDonald, Dennis Lung, Michelle Sain, Barbara Sturdivant, R. 2 Shelli Beching, Denise Sukow, Rosie Johnson, Ms. Trues- dale, Sharon Donahue, Mickey Lyies. R. 3 Paulette Jones, Tammy Mayes, Darrell Diemer, Debra Pontius, Jim Levanavick, Rick Carey, Sam Broyles, Jeanette Harrison, Dave Trogdon. 2. Ninth grade students enrolled in French not only learn about the language but also about the culture of France. High- lights of the year include the French reveillon, a Christmas dinner held at school, and the spring visit to Cafe Johnell, the local French restaurant. These students are mastering techniques of French pronunciation by practicing together in small groups. Seated in the rear group-Jay Trammel, Duane Shepherd. Middle Left-Sean Henisa. Middle Center-Jill Keener, Darch Scott. Middle Right-Tracy Fryback, Jill Holderness. Front-Jill Sylvester, Jenny Ray, Chris Wilkerson. Front Right- (Head Blocked) Molly Skordos. 3. Students in all Language and Language Arts classes learn the value of the media all around, and become aware of ways to make it useful in our everyday lives. These students have been using magazines and newspapers to make collages as they learn about good eating habits-a fun way. Left row-Ray Starks, Cheryl Harmon, Tim Conner. Middle row-Jimmy Rodri- quez, Ms. Begun, Danny Kocks. Right row-Nona Downy. " There is no knowledge which is not valuable. " Edmund Burke " Equipped with his five senses, man explores the universe around him and calls the adventure Science. " Edwin P. Hubble Science 1. These 8th grade students in Mr. Howard ' s class demonstrate how a solid like iodine crystals can change directly to a gas. This seems strange to most because in the past, solids they have seen warmed have melted to a liquid. Those pictured are: Pat Murphy, Tim Mattery, Carrie Schaeter, Mary Adams and Tony Williams. 2. Mr. Overmeyer ' s 9th grade Biology class is learning through the use ot miscroscopes. In Gen- eral Biology students develop skills tor scientific experimentation and observation. Teachers at- tempt to stimulate the innate curiosity within stu- dents about the beauties and complexities ot all life forms. 3. Mr. key ' s llS-ldeas Investigations in Science class is a new program in biology offered to Frank- lin ninth graders. Students learn each new idea by actually working with that idea in the laboratory. This class helps students understand the relevance of scientific problems in the world and their every- day lives. Tari )udd, Arley Poling, Chris Ellison, Tim Whilacre and Cerrie Bauer don ' t seem too sure about touching one of live specimens brought in for study. 4. Dave Clark, Clint Fisher, Denny Gordon, and Cheryl Wimes are demonstrating to the rest of Mr. Gorman ' s 7th grade science class just how a ther- mometer works. Q 0-)b,c are reoj number?, Q a.(b V aCb4-(-cy N=a.b- . a ir % 1. Mark Earnest, Gary Ceist, Denise Didier, stu- dents in Mr. Cinder ' s Algebra class seem to be giving the board their full attention. Gary seems to be saying, " Proofs are easy, now just follow along and you will see your mistake. " 2. Mr. Riebs is giving students good advice as they learn to measure the angles of various polygons. In Math, the hope is to broaden and deepen the student ' s basic skills and apprecia- tion of mathematics. 3. Mr. Simpson is helping Charles Pearson, Con- nie Whitacre, Marcella Sizemore, John Ford and Sonja White get some of their worksheets from the packets in the back of the room. These worksheets are a part of a new supplimentary Math program. In this program, students have the opportu- nity to work on problems and exercises about material they have forgotten but must have to continue successfully. We are spending about one day a week on this material. " Knowledge advances by steps, and not by 3 leaps. " Typing , ' " i ; ' In typing a student ' s ability is used to help him her discover a whole new experience. This experience is a springboard to a job once out of high school or while still in school. Students learn to type at rates of 30 to as high as 70 words per minute the first year with no trouble. A typist also enjoys learning how to type letters and term papers, a skill that may help during the school year with other classes. Business forms and centering are other ways students learn to manipulate his machine. 1. Dave Trogdon, Dave Neuhaus, and Jill Jackson work quietly as the room thunders with the " tick, tick, tick " of their typewriters. 2. Elaine Murdock works hard on returning her carriage quickly so she can reach her goal of 50 words per minute. 3. Denise Didier reacts to the satisfaction she receives when obtaining a goal in typing a letter. 4. Study Hall offers students an opportunity to complete all assignments at school, visit the library, and carry out a few extra projects. It is a valuable tool for the student who uses time wisely. " Those, who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little tempo- rary safety, deserve neither liberty or safety. " Ben Franklin Study Hall Social Studies 1. Students in Mr. Fox ' s class investigate and participate in the inner workings of American Society, Business and Government. These students are involved in a mock trial. R. 1. Cerri Bauer, Linda McCee, Linn Artrip, Coletta Perry, Bob Moore; R. 2. Mr. Fox, Titus Jackson, Miehelle Casaboom, Jerry Brooks, and Tom Fremuth. 2. Lorna Stetler, pointing to the Constitution, illustrates one of the many units covered as Mr. Ault ' s 8th grade classes study the birth and grovvth of the United States of America. " HISTORY tells what man has done; ART, what man has made; LIT- ERATURE, what man has felt; RELIGION, what man has believed; PHILOSOPHY, what man has thought. " Benjamin Leeming JX ' 3. The se students are cutting slabs of clay which will be put together to make ashtrays. Mosaic inlays, which the stu- dents also make, are later glued in and finished off with grout. Students working hard on these projects are: Robert Moss, Jennifer Patterson, Lori Ostrander, Greg Huffman, Larry Ashley, Levon Bennett, Deon Patton, Mr. Converse, Sallie LeFavour, and Kathy Haugen. Industrial Arts 1. B. Catewood, J. Levanavich, D. Jordan, |. Trammel, 9th grade Drafting students learn that drafting is the science of planning ahead. The same concepts can be used to plan a trip to the Bahamas. 2. T. Sexton, J. Hill, J. Olry, M. Tutwiller, |. Till are finding out that Mr. Ketterman hits the nail on the head when it comes to plane talk about wood- working. He has all the angles when it comes to putting a new twist to Industrial Arts. The 8th 9th grade General Shop classes involve them- selves with woodworking, woodtrimming, metalcasting, sheet metal as well as the proper use of tools and equipment. 5. B. Moore, D. Sherman, R. Niemeyer are involved in mass production of salt and pepper shakers for their World of Manufacturing Company. In room 169 many outstanding activities are always taking place. The World of Manufacturing classes study and copy industry through the manufacture of rockets, the LSRAV. Students not only learn how products are made but why they are made. Mr. Clair ' s classes simulate industry when possible. " All experience is an arch, to build upon. ' Henry Adams Home Economics 1. which color do you like best? Seventh grade Home Economics students learn their color preference while doing a national pilot program tor MCKnight Publishing Co. Once they learned their preference, they learned what the color tells about their personality. Half a year students study nutrition, food preparation, meal planning, management and service and consumer- ism. 2. Lee, Charles, and Betty look forward to eating " the lesson of the day. " 3. These 9th graders are comparing prices and products as they learn the importance of be- coming informed consumers. 4. During the Clothing se- mester. Home Economics students learn advanced tech- niques in clothing through the construction of garments for their own wardrobe. 5. A trip to one of the city ' s finest restaurants of motivation enough for 9th grade students in Foods class to eagerly learn and use proper tabi_i-- i- quette. Quite a change from the usual lunch routirT The seventh grade classes are usually on an exploratory basis and students are exposed to the many areas of study within the field of Home Economics. This survey gives them a better idea of specific interests they wish to study in depth as they advance. The eighth grade program begins the indepth study of Foods and Nutrition, Clothing and Textiles, Interpersonal Relationships, Personality and Grooming, and Leisure time activities. Each year the number of young men enrolled in Home Economics increases. Mrs. Heaston and Mrs. Katter see the subject as being relevant to everyone because it cen- ters on the needs of people. Health And Safety 1. In front of the class are Craig Bowers, Dave Red- ding, Angie Meeks, Titus Jackson, and Barbara Gatewood. Class projects such as those displayed, are an important part of the learning process in Mr. Petroff ' s Health and Safety classes. An understand- ing of human reproduction, gaining insight into the drug abuse problem, learning the practical appli- cation of first aid techniques and attaining driving skills and attitudes are the main areas of concentra- tion for freshmen in their Health and Safety classes here at Franklin. " We live on a moving line between the past and future That line is our life line. " Physical Education 3 ffiS 2. These 9th grade girls are improving their skills at Volleyball in Physical Education. Im- proving and learning skills in various sports is just one way students are encouraged to develop real physical fittness. 3. Check the form on these 7th graders in action. Mr. Riley ' s 6th period class go through their paces as they do the warm up activity. The Physical Education program for young men includes skills in a variety of sports as well as body building routines. " To do easily what is difficult for others is the mark of talent. " Amiel, 1856 " Every person is a bundle of possibilities and he is worth what life may get out of him before it is through. " Harry Emmerson Fosdick Seventh Grade Band f S .s L£- stage Band Pep Band Orchestra Franklin offers students a great variety of instrumental groups from which to choose. 1. The Seventh Grade Band consists of all incoming wind and percussion players in the seventh grade, who have studied in the 5th and 6th grade. 2. Stage bands are an important part of the junior high school music curriculum. They play a wide variety of music. 3. The Pep Band is composed of students from the Concert Band and they perform at all home 9th grade basketball games. 4. The Concert Orchestra adds another dimension to the total music program. The string section for this group consists of 7th 8th and 9th grade stnng players, and selected winds from the Stage Band. " When a musician hath forgot his note. He makes as though a crumb stuck in his throat. " John Clarke, 1639 Franklin Melody Makers 1. The Franklin Chorus is made up of selected eighth and ninth grade students, most of whom have been in chorus for three years. They began as a training choir and have prog- ressed to a performing group. The Ninth Grade Choir meets every day, and performs as a unit at each concert. The entire chorus has the opportunity to sing for outside activities, other than school concerts and assemblies, as the privilege arises. The many voices of Franklin are directed by Mrs. Ehinger. " The language of tones belongs equally to all mankind, and melody Is the absolute language In which the musician speaks to every heart. " Richard Wagner 2. The Seventh Grade Chorus is a selected group from each of our " feeder " schools. These students come to us from their respective schools very well prepared by their former instructors, ready to perform for the public. They do an ex- cellent job as they perform in two concerts in training for the Franklin Chorus. " Of all noises I think music the least disagreeable " Samuel Johnson 1816 Salute America !!!!! 1. The Concert Band, directed by Mr. Stellhorn is composed of 8th and 9th grade wind and percussion students who have passed a level of profeclency and are capable of playing junior high level band music. This group performs at two or more concerts a year. The group alternates with Orchestra on a tour of two elementary schools each spring to play for the 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students. This organi- zation is also used as a pep band to help provide spirit for 9th grade basketball games. oifwhe PMill foil " ' ' " ' " ■ !: ' ' u ' ' ' " u ' , ' " " ° ' " ' ' 8 ' " d " ' ' ' " ' ' " ' " ester, learn to play the guitar, followmg which they each learn to play tunes on the piano, and autoharp As they become proficient in simple tunes they all perform as a group, playing together.

Georgia Holmes, Tammy Harris, Sally Stoiche, Becky Larue, Mr. Reche, Dragan joueski, Tim Counterman and Dan Eiter look on as the " world " gets lifted up. The 7th grade social studies classes are beginning to realize their responsibilities in sharing the burden of world problems. Classes study the Non-Western World,— combining his- tory, geography, economics, and political science in a cultural approach. " The only freedom which deserves the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it. " Seventh Grade Block Program " I have ever deemed it more honorable and more prof- itable, too, to set a good example than to follow a bad one. " Thomas Jefferson 4 3. The seventh grade Developmental Reading Class in R-101 is working on a grocery list. The grocery ads listed in the Wednesday Journal Gazette provide an excellent opportunity for comparison shopping. Developmental Reading is required of all sev- enth grade students. The course is designed to improve all students. Contrary to some thinking is the fact that even the best can still be better in all areas of reading. The desire to read and enjoy reading is a prime objective. 4. This Section 500 of the seventh grade after- noon block is perusing the newspaper. Classes are involved in newspaper projects during one week in November and another in April. Math is an important part of the block experi- ence, also. Varsity Top L. Team and Coach map out a new strategy for the second half. Top R. The rest of the team and fans get into the action. Middle.

Celebrating the birthdays of our city and our nation was a memorable event of the year. Students and faculty dressed in costume depicting vari- ous periods of American history. 1. Is that one of those mean McCoy ' s from the mountains: No, it ' s our own Mr. Bakle. 2. Elaine Murdock and Benita Moore look as if they just stepped out of the 1940 ' s. 3. Doug Geoffray is the miniature Uncle Sam. 4. Mrs. Daley is the colonial lady, and Ms. Truesdale reminded us that the farmer has been the backbone of our progress. 5. The Williamsburg couple are Mr. Clair and Mrs. Wilkerson. And That ' s The Way It Was!!!!! A backward glance at education was a special feature of Back-to-School night. 1. A classroom of 1860 was revisited in R-153. Mr. Bisliop and several students dressed in the fashions of the day and the room was redecorated to look like a typical classroom of that period in History. 2. Notice the spats and pinst- ripped suit worn by Mr. Reibs. He and his students demonstrated what teaching and learning was like in a 1920 classroom. 1 3. Yes, they really did wear dunce caps and students wrote on slates. A corner of R-107 was transformed to the " way it was " in 1775. Notice the stern ex- pressions on the faces of the teacher and students. Education was a somber experience in those days. Mr, Phillips and students showed visitors the way people dressed and how learning was accomplished during the year before our nation ' s birth. One wonders if these students heard or under- stood what political leaders of that day meant? " The ground of liberty must be gained by inches. " Thomas Jefferson We ' ve Got That Winning Spirit of Many Homeroom activities keep school spirit running high all year long. 1. Debbie Kacsor works hard on door decoration for Spirit Week. 2. Spirit Week door decorations get the year started off in high gear. 3. 1-2-3 PULL!! Home- rooms compete in exciting Tug-of-War contests. Ev- eryone gets into the act. 4. Flag football is another Fall favorite. 5. Indoor Hockey gives the girls a chance to shine. 6. Room 265 capture the 8th grade Flag Football championship for the second year in a row. 7. The 9th grade Flag Football Champs get to keep the " big one " for the year. Franklin Students and School Spirit are like Benjamin Franklin and his kite and key. Kite- ' N-Key Franklin Post The Publication Staff is a volunteer group of 8th and 9th grade students who give many hours outside of the regular school day to publish the monthly issues of the Franklin Post and the Kite ' N Key yearbook.

They kept the AV room going and helped keep the teachers as happy as possible. " To make mistakes as we are on the way to knowledge Is far more honorable than to es- cape making them through never having set out to seek knowledge. " R.F. Trench Crafts— Creativity— Citizenship 1. This is a club where students have a chance to express their talent in the work of String Art. 2. Roiann Heeren and Jennifer Patterson demonstrate Mirror Pantomine as the rest of the Drama Club members act as critics. 3. Model Club attracts stu- dents interested in building models. They meet with Mr. Reibs to share their hobby with others and receive helpful suggestions. A variety of models are assembled during the year. 5. The Franklin Elves Worhshlp. Apples during American Education Week, candy canes at Christmas, End-of semester Snowmen, Birthday greetings, and other surprises for Faculty and Staff members originate among the Elves. Rather than being Mischievous or Teasing, Franklin Elves aim toward spreading good cheer and pleasure around the school. 4. Afro-American Club provides many social functions for Franklin students.
