Blocked American Studies class separates.

Sophomore English and history classes will no longer be taught together as the blocked course American Studies, an administrative decision that received mixed reviews.
Sophomore English teacher Bruce Campbell said he enjoyed the blocked class.
“The integrated nature of the American Studies course was providing kids with a unique experience that will be extremely difficult to replicate with the courses split,” Campbell said.
Junior Maggie Hobson, who took AP American Studies, said the split will be beneficial, as students no longer must commit to on-track or AP track for both disciplines of study.
Campbell said sophomores will continue to receive excellent instruction in both disciplines.
