AP European History creates sweaters
Students of history teacher Emily Alderâ€™s Advanced Placement European History classes participated in a project to design French Revolution-themed ugly sweaters from Monday Nov. 26 to Tuesday Dec. 4 in room P-11.
Students designed Christmas sweaters based on important parts of the French Revolution using various materials, including paint, lights and cardboard.
â€śI had fun making [my project] because [we had to] put all the information we learned together to design the sweater,â€ť sophomore Natalie Olvera said. â€śEveryone seemed happier because it was a break from our usual book work.â€ť
Students voted in class on which sweater had most creative design. The winner of each period received extra credit on their project.
â€śI was trying as hard as possible because I really needed extra credit,â€ť sophomore Samuel Deng said. â€śIt was a good outlet for me to get my grade up. I even made a [wooden] guillotine because I really wanted to win.â€ť
