Students from two Advanced Placement classes at Clear Creek High School listen as Matt O'Leary gives a presentation on Ronald Reagan and why he deserves a seat at their metaphorical dinner table.
CCHS AP students create place settings, choose figures to join ‘The Dinner Party’

Students in two Clear Creek High School classes had a dinner party recently at which there was no food. Instead, they explained why historical figures they chose should be invited to the table for dinner.

So, it wasn’t really a dinner party: It was at 8:30 a.m., and while there wasn’t a meal, there was cake after the presentations.

This was an exercise to get the students in the Advanced Placement U.S. history and the Advanced Placement language and composition classes to review for their exams and to practice persuasive speech.
