Ms. Rankenburg’s 3rd period class is hard at work on one of their final assignments for AP US History: writing a song. “We’re taking a song and putting our own lyrics over it about American History. Everyone has a theme; my theme is wars, so our song is about all of the wars,” junior Tess Thompson said. In addition to writing their songs, the students will make videos to go with them. “It’s a lot of fun,” Thompson said.
