Summer Programs

Alan Borsuk:

Nothing like a stifling hot classroom in the middle of July for an opportunity to learn about ductility.
OK, maybe you’re inclined to other subjects in other places at this time of year. Suit yourself.
But if you’re going to win “Are You as Smart as an MPS Fourth Grader in Summer School,” you better brush up on ductility. I admit I would have lost at this when I walked into the room at Hi-Mount School on the west side one morning last week.
A fan was blowing across an aluminum pan filled with blue cold-packs to try to get some cooler air moving in the un-air-conditioned room. But it was still very hot. Despite that, 16 students appeared to be listening with reasonable attentiveness to MPS veteran teacher Dianne Ross.
