Dr. Peretin's Elf Visits BHS

Tess the Elf and her reindeer, Tesla, watched over the sophomore Honors English students in Mrs. Schulte's classes as they discussed Thornton Wilder's play, The Matchmaker. The students used a discussion technique called "cubing," from Carol Ann Tomlinson's book, The Differentiated Classroom: Responding to the Needs of All Learners, and a simultaneous back-channel conversation via group posts to an online, whole-class chat room.
