Five girls standing in front of a wall.Members of Mrs. Burke’s AP English 11 class are currently studying John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath.

As part of their enrichment activities, students shared presentations with their classmates on topics associated with the time period. Topics included Okies, Route 66, Dust Bowl, Hudson Motor Company, Works Progress Administration, Resettlement Administration, Tenant farmers, and Weedpatch Camp.  Groups designed presentations that provided information about the topic as well as the topic’s relevance to the novel.
