LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Lafayette Jeff High School seniors researched for their English class, Advanced Placement British Literature, while picking their own topics to study.
On Wednesday, the seniors presented their final projects to their peers.
For the course, students researched their topic history, volunteered at local non-profit agencies, created their own music and wrote novels.
Chuck Herber, Lafayette Jeff High School English teacher, said the students are working toward the goal of graduating, but also believed it was important that the students cared about their topics.
"I find it far superior than walking up to a kid and saying this is your topic. They come in with a topic from the outside and they self generate this in the course of the year." said Herber.
"So we are standing up, having presentations about something that we did independent research on. I'm going to be talking about music technology and all the different components of it. The equipment used, the programs used, and the instruments." said Brandon Buikema, Lafayette Jeff High School senior.
There were 22 students in the class.
A Lafayette man charged with multiple bank robberies in Tippecanoe and Clinton Counties pleads guilty to a series of bank robberies in Illinois.
The drop in temperatures brings the potential for health dangers, such as hypothermia and frost bite. The bitter temperatures can pose a threat for children, adults and pets.
As it stands Wednesday, there will be no FEMA aid for tornado survivors in Howard County.
