STUDENT OF THE WEEK

Brittany Burda

Q. What grade are you currently in?

A. 12th

Q. What is your favorite subject? Why?

A. That's a tough question. Personally, I think it has to be tied between history and my media class. I've always loved learning about human culture. However, my media class is also one of my favorite classes because I love being creative and running our school's news show. I'm thinking about going into graphic design, so this class is valuable to me.

Q. Have you received any special awards or recognition?

Q. What grade are you in?

A. I am in 12th grade at Salisbury High School.

Q. What is your favorite subject? Why?

A. Picking one subject would be difficult, but my favorite classes are science and history subjects. I love science because I like to learn how things work like the human body or chemical equations. I also love history because I think it's important to learn about the past to build a better future.

Fake plague outbreak in Salisbury Middle School makes social studies lesson contagious

Social studies teacher Matt Tobias brings the Black Death to life

A generation or two ago, studying the Black Plague of the Middle Ages was not one of the more interesting subjects sixth and seventh graders had to study.

A few sketches and a lot of words in a textbook describing the bubonic plague of the Late Middle Ages (1340–1400) seemed to be something to be endured to get through the school year.

Things are a lot different today at Salisbury Middle School.

Social Studies teacher Matt Tobias immerses his students in the study in a way that actually makes learning fun and engaging.

Students at both Harry S Truman Elementary School and Western Salisbury Elementary School learn the benefits of healthy eating by bringing in different colored food each day. At WSE for the orange/yellow day, students were encouraged to wear the color of the day and bring in a food to match the color.
