As teenagers stuck in a small town, we long for adventure and excitement. However, lack of time, money and rides can prevent us from seeking it. Instead of complaining about being trapped and turning to our phones, there is an alternative option. I think we often forget that we can discover what we w...

I’m sure every one of you reading this right now has held an opinion on a situation or event that somebody else disagrees with. It is common nature to have disagreements, but the frustrating thing is when you are one of the few that has a differing view. From music to art to sports, there always se...

Deforestation, Carbon Emissions, and Other Ways to Enjoy the End of the World

Anna DeNoia, Staff Writer

Filed under Opinion

We had a pretty confusing February, Chicagoland. Sunshine? Weather in the 60s and 70s? People wearing SHORTS? Is it spring break already??? Not yet! Your calendar wasn’t wrong -- while warm, it was still winter. Your thermometer, however, also wasn’t lying. February temperatures in Chicago this ...

Wikipedia. SparkNotes. Group chats. Wiki Notes. Shmoop. The list is endless. Many students use these “school shortcuts” just to get by in their classes. As high school students, to describe us as busy is an understatement. Some nights there just isn’t time to read a chapter and take notes, ...

The bell rings, and everyone rushes to sit down before they’re marked tardy. Chatter dies as 50 minutes of instruction begins. Twenty minutes in, the looks of boredom set in on the faces of students. A hand reaches into the pocket and takes me out. Honestly, I’d take myself out too. This lectur...

Filed under Columns, Opinion

With Sparknotes and Wikipedia posting plot summaries and presenting symbolism right to us, why read? Everything you need for that paper is at your fingertips, and it doesn’t take 200 pages. It takes two. But that doesn’t mean it’s the best choice. The books that we read in high school gro...
