FIELD TRIPS
St. John's College
Students in AP Literature and History took a trip to St. John’s College on Thursday, January 11th to learn about the unique liberal arts curriculum and participate in a typical St. John’s seminar. An admissions officer held a candid discussion with students about the unique atmosphere and curriculum St. John’s college offers. Students from across the county seek out the extremely rigorous curriculum based on reading the Great Book and learning in a collaborative-inquiry based classroom. They were surprised to learn that there are no tests at St. John’s, instead all subjects are taught through seminar discussions led by a professor, or as they call them, tutors. Students write essays at the end of each semester to demonstrate their new-found knowledge on the subject whether it be math, literature, science, language, or music- a sampling of classes in which all students in the program are engaged. Additionally, they participate in a tradition known as Don Rags, where a student sits at a table with each of her tutors while the tutors discuss her as if she is not there. Although it sounds a little intimidating, the comments the tutors offer should never be surprising since we, as students, are the best people to judge our actions.
Our students had the opportunity to participate in one of the seminars with a St. John’s tutor. Students were selected for two groups, Antigone or Letters to Birmingham Jail. We have held similar seminars in AP Literature this year and therefore our students were thoroughly prepared. The tutors were impressed with the level of knowledge our students possessed and their ability to collaboratively participate in mature discussions about the topics. We were extremely proud of how our students represented Chesapeake Science Point.
The trip ended with lunch at St. John’s dining hall. A little smaller than our students had anticipated but it definitely did not lack choice. Many of our hungry students filled their plates to the top with everything because they did not want to miss out on anything, especially the ice-cream!
