The subject topic had to be one which would engage the whole class, have them doing the things they usually would not, and include science experiments.
These were teenagers. The topic was to be the many forms of alcohol and their preparation. Students had to choose a drink each and prepare a paper on it and then present their work in a talk to the class.
An excursion to a local hotel was included and a variety of experiments conducted.
All students worked as never before. The unit was a resounding success. Library use, writing and talks were all superb.
The topic was appropriately entitled “Booze”.
