Mrs. Iapalucci's Honors English IV classes recently wrote archetypal analyses using the Aristotelian argument structure. They presented their arguments to their classmates, who then voted on which students used the structure most effectively. In period 3, students liked Maddie Weber's the most; she showed how widely different movies and television shows from all genres, such as Spiderman and Gilmore Girls, rely on the coming-of-age situational archetype. Period 4 voted for Micah Humes' essay; he argued how, in The Office, Michael Scott's unchallenged and inappropriate behavior as an archetypal leader proves how toxic work environments can easily arise and harm the people who work in them. Students also enjoyed the presentations by Sofia Ortiz, Olivia DiGello, Grace Goodelle, Piran Jeffery, and Ella Knight!
