Academic Decathlon

  • World War II

    Join us for an exciting year!  This year's theme is WWII, which means that all of our topics (Art, Music, History, Science, Literature, & Economics) revolve around that time period & topic.  Our math this year is a mix of Algebra I & II, and Pre-Calc/Trig.  The novel tied to our literature topic is Transit, by Seghers.

    We will be building teams of 9 students (3 A students, 3 B students, and 3 C students per team).


    Meetings:  Rm 353, Friday during homeroom (practice) & Friday at lunch (meeting)
    Competition is not until the end of January.  We have until then to prepare.

    Each team member will be expected to compete in all of the events.  The events include: 7 multiple choice tests (art, music, literature, math, science, social science, economics), 1 essay (you will have a choice of 3 prompts on which to write), 1 prepared speech (3 1/2 to 4 minutes in length), 1 impromptu speech (1 1/2 to 2 minutes in length), 1 interview (7 minutes in length), and participation in our Super Quiz competition (done with members of your team on stage).
