CLARK — Sophomores at Arthur L. Johnson High School in Clark are reading Fahrenheit 451, while seniors were visited by a representative of DeVry University.
All senior health classes at Arthur L. Johnson High School in Clark met with Kinya Travis, a representative from DeVry University, on Nov. 1. Travis talked about thinking outside of the box to discover the possibilities of taking your next step. For most seniors at ALJ that would be college or a university. Students took a personality survey to figure out what kind of personality they have and what jobs best fit them. Students got to discuss topics beyond high school, like what they want to study and what degree they will need for it.

Marie Palma’s 10th grade English class at Arthur L. Johnson High School in Clark was recently challenged to devise a creative format for displaying the journey of the protagonist, Guy Montag in Ray Bradbury’s novel, Fahrenheit 451.
Students were given two project days in class to collaborate with their groups and design their timelines. For each event in the timeline, students had to sketch, illustrate or locate an image to enhance that event. Next, the students had to identify three prominent symbols studied throughout the novel, include an image to accent that symbol, and a description of what the symbol represents. In addition, students located important quotes to delineate the character of Guy Montag.
Pictured above, Stephanie Marin and Claudia Skiba model their timeline plan for the class and devised a key to correspond to all the project requirements.
