To conserve time and facilitate in¬ struction, team-teaching was practiced. Pooling talents and classes, several teach¬ ers planned group presentations around a lecture, film or discussion. These occasions utilized an augmented supply of movies and records. Sophomores loded European and Amer¬ ican literature with new textbooks. Junior and Senior budding journalists learned the ropes with the bi-weekly Crimson Crier and the annual Watchtower, both supervised by Mr. Nicholas Peschang. For the second year, Mrs. Marie Gillette’s English 12C spurred academically gifted seniors in the language arts. And for the first year, the Literary Club, guided by Mr. David Ramacitti, fostered creative writing and literary criticism.

Among sophomores, it was the compul¬ sory realm of biolog y, where the Depart¬ ment was working toward a new prog ram entailing more lab, a strong er emphasis on living matter, and a new text. As a result of summer experiences, Mr. Richard Motz in¬ itiated a section on oceanog raphy in his classes. Upperclassmen could elect Advanced Biology, Regular, Nurses’ and Advanced Placement Chemistry, Physics and an ad¬ vanced dual period of Chem-Physics. The Science Department also experimented on their own this year. To mute background hub-bub and stimulate concentration, sooth¬ ing music was played in the labs. With a sly smile on his face. Mr. Cave hands out an as¬ signment to his fourth period physics class. JOHN STONE. B.A.. Au stana; M A T. Michigan State University; Camera Club. Science Council; Chemistry.
