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

Science Section Utilizes New Addition A number of additions in science facilities at Rock Island aided teachers in better methods of instruction. A large portion of the third floor of Rock Island ' s new wing was devoted to laboratories, classrooms, and a lecture and demonstration room. Up-to-date textbooks were is¬ sued in Chemistry, Biology I, and Biology II. All Sophomores were required to take Biology I, and instructors experimented with a new method of teaching sections of the course this year. Three classes met in a joint session to hear lectures and participate in discussions. Upperclassmen were given the opportunity to choose electives in Regular and Nurses Chemistry, Ad¬ vanced Biology, and Physics.
