Illinois Boys State Applications Available

Illinois Boys State Week (June 12-18, 2021) applications are now available. Young men from all across the state meet to share a common goal:  create a mythical 51st state government, complete with governmental bodies and elected public officials.   The program is designed to mirror the structure of Illinois local, country and state governments, while providing training in citizenship, leadership, and character development. This is an experience recognized by employers, service academies, and university admissions boards as an indicator of strong leadership and character traits.  Boys who have completed their junior year in high school are eligible to participate.  To learn more about this opportunity click on the Illinois 2021 Boys State Brochure and Application. The cost of this experience is covered by the American Legion. If you have any questions please contact Mr. Finch at gfinch@mths.us.

Mrs. Cooper’s Senior English – Awarded Classroom of the Month

Congratulations to Mrs. Cooper’s Senior English class for being awarded the Classroom of the Month from Smith Magazine, a national publication! 

According to Danielle Shum’s article “The class first examines Ernest Hemingway’s legendary six-word novel: “For sale: baby shoes never worn.” They discuss how the simplicity of six words captivates and provokes an interest to learn more. Cooper then asks her students to consider a significant event in their lives and write the memoir in three different ways. “I really wanted to hit home this idea that a memoir is not your whole life,” she says “it’s an event that shapes you as a person. It can be positive, it can be negative, but should be powerful.””

The following memoirs are only a few examples of student works: 

  • “Stay patient and trust the process.” – Riley
  • “Don’t believe what people tell you.” – Will
  • “Begin, Cringe, Wish for new start.” – Amira
  • “Doing Things My Family Isn’t.” -Jason 
  • “I don’t even care about you.”-Alisa 

This is the second time that Mrs. Cooper’s class has received this recognition. Way to go Mrs. Cooper and students! Continue achieving and reaching for excellence.

Take a look at the complete article to learn more about Mrs. Cooper’s fabulous Senior English class:  Glass Castle Meets Six Words at Metamora Township High School in Illinois.
