Sharing Global Cultures

R.C. Murphy Junior High School students in John Strub’s classes shared a piece of their family’s heritage and culture with peers through an alternative learning project.

The students in Mr. Strub’s global history and Advanced Placement world history classes made connections to their personal ethnicity or culture through song, dance or performance art. For example, a quartet of string musicians performed an excerpt from Vivaldi’s “Gloria,” a student played the national anthem from the Republic of Ireland on the tin whistle, a guitarist performed a Russian folk song and two girls did Irish step dancing.

The project is an enrichment opportunity for the classes to understand various regions studied beyond the academic component discussed through the courses.

Playing with Literacy

R.C. Murphy Junior High School eighth-grade students in Michael Flanagan’s class shared their love of literacy with peers in a unique way this spring – by creating intricate and interactive board games.

As part of an independent reading project, the students selected a fantasy or science fiction book and created board games based on the story’s plotline. Each game featured key characters from the novels that were challenged to complete a quest or journey. Students created individual playing pieces and cards referencing what happened to the characters in the books.

Peers enjoyed learning about their classmates chosen books by taking turns playing the different board games, which highlighted such stories as “Woven,” “Doomspell” and “Stranger in a Strange Land.”

R.C. Murphy Junior High School captured second-place during this year’s Brookhaven National Lab’s Regional Middle School Science Bowl.

The team practiced since the fall for the event under the direction of teacher Patrick McManus.

During the contest the students engaged in a round robin event followed by a double elimination final. They faced a series of challenging questions in the categories of chemistry, biology, physics, mathematics, astronomy as well as general, earth, and computer science. They narrowly missed first place with a final score of 74-68 against a tough team from Commack.
