Destination Imagination Team Advances to State Tournament

On March 17, the WHS Destination Imagination (DI) team (Smaranda Costiner, Willow Stoner, Jarius Kidd, Eric Yu, and Robbin Ma) competed in the regional Destination Imagination Tournament along with teams from nearby elementary, middle, and high schools. Our team created and built a quadcopter and wrote and performed a medieval melodrama featuring a knight, a princess, and a dragon—all complemented by beautifully crafted costumes and a Spenserian sonnet in iambic pentameter. They shocked everyone, most of all themselves, by successfully flying their quadcopter for the first time during their performance! Our team came in first place in their challenge and age level, so they are moving on to the DI State Tournament, on Saturday, March 30 at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. The WHS community is warmly invited to come watch their performance at States! More info to follow. Congratulations, to the team for all of their hard work and their awesome performance!

Heroes and Monsters – Grade 11 Main Lesson

What makes a hero? How have our cultural lore and storytelling used heroic narratives to define our ideal selves? How have the monsters and villains of those stories, in conflict with heroic virtue, taught us to distinguish between acceptable and transgressive behavior? In the Heroes and Monsters block, taught by Mr. Joseph O’Donnell, students explore these questions through some of the most iconic and memorable heroes and monsters in our literature: Gilgamesh and Beowulf, the first human and English stories, but also Don Quixote, Superman and Spiderman, Dracula and the Wolfman, and such anti-heroes as Jay Gatsby, Willy Loman, and Holden Caulfield. The class examines how the archetype of the hero and monster/villain has changed through time, leading to our modern iterations of the superhero, the anti-hero, and the modern monster (the vampire, man-wolf, and zombie) as the enemy from within.
