Flappers and gangsters appeared in Room 532 earlier this week when, for the 18th year in a row, Trish Tripepiís American Lit students ended a unit on The Great Gatsby by holding a Roaring 20ís party. Students are required to attend the party as a real person from that time period, after conducting research a few weeks ago in order to become familar with their chosen character.
Ms. Tripepi points out that the party is always a favorite among her students, and says that when she runs into former students, itís one of the fond memories they always recall from her class.
