LYLE JONES WILLIAM ARMSTRONG ARNOLD CASEY B.S., M.A., Economics, B.S., American History, B.Ed., M.A., Geography Sophomores Debate TED DICKERSON HOLLIS HEGG JERRY JANECKE B.A., M.A., American His- B.A., M.A., American Gov- 3.A., American Govern- tory ernment ment. Sophomore Football, Baseball Team Teaching Enhances Social Studies Seven courses were available for the social studies student at Rocky. Sophomore World History, American History, Economics, American Government, Modern Euro¬ pean History, Economic Geography, and World Geogra¬ phy were offered. Social studies are derived from the people in the community, people in the state, people in the United States, and people throughout the world interested in their environment. As progress expanded scientific and mechanical methods, so did social studies instruction grow by combining classes in a form of team teaching, and by using overhead projectors. Methods of teaching which proved out well were: class discussions, daily quizzes, and films covering all areas of the world. The senior Economics classes worked with group discussions in an unique method. Students were divided into small groups according to their early achievement in class. MR. OWEN MUELDER passes out the Juniors ' status symbol, " The American Observer. " 38

The students learned to communi¬ cate in French, German, Latin, and Spanish through reading foreign lan¬ guage textbooks, reciting exercises in class, and writing essays. New methods of teaching were in¬ troduced this year, such as a broader use of overhead projectors, films and slides, and use of key students in teaching small groups within the classes. Students also corresponded, according to the language they took, with pen pals from various countries. MRS. CAROLINE SEARS consults her text book in answering her students ' questions. 37
