AP students prepare F. Scott Fitzgerald Museum

From Issue 3

apfitztynes8On Wednesday, November 9th, those on campus should make sure to stop by the Multi-Purpose Room to view the Junior AP English class’ interactive “museum” of the 1920s and the life of F. Scott Fitzgerald, a prominent author of the decade. The Junior AP students recently finished their study of Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby. Students were divided into nine groups with five or six students per “exhibit.”

The museum is to be set in Fitzgerald’s hometown, St. Paul, Minnesota, which is visiting the Jackson Prep Gallery, (the MPR.) The director of the museum, Ms. Anna Griffin, wants students to create an immersive, interactive experience for the museum’s visitors, as well as a learning experience for everyone who comes. All Prep students are invited, as well as parents, teachers, faculty, or any other Prep visitor. There will be a survey requesting visitors to provide feedback on the tour and the exhibits.

With a wide variety of exhibits, the juniors will learn more about the decade in a hands-on learning environment. This event is definitely more fun than a research paper. Each exhibit will be fun, exciting, and interactive for students to view and learn about the 1920s, also known as the roaring twenties.
