Rather than completing their PSSA-style grammar review questions the traditional way, Mrs. Rimel's 8th-grade students at Penn Middle School "horsed around" instead! As each group completed a review question, a jockey had to gallop his or her work up to have it checked. If correct, the group could move its racehorse ahead a spot. The first to cross the finish line was the winner.
Some of the students acting as jockeys were Celia Sperber, Sophia Lecce, Paul Pierce, Ben Jobe, Jake Campbell and Rylan Kiste
The lesson was enjoyed by all
