In February, Advanced Placement Seminar classes at Bayport-Blue Point High School traveled to neighboring Sayville High School to explore the stimuli for the students’ upcoming performance task. Together in groups of four, students from both schools explored articles, short stories, excerpts and videos all based on the theme of happiness. Topics ranged from the genetic development of happiness to the wonderful world of Disney. The students later used the valuable ideas they gained through this collaboration to develop individual research essays related to happiness, incorporating different perspectives and a variety of research, resolutions and limitations.
