Using websites and social media, this year’s goals of a widely known Franklin Community High School class are to promote school spirit and raise money for an Indianapolis children’s hospital.
The innovations course, which encourages students to get real-life experience through projects they brainstorm and carry out, has a new leader and a new class of students. But the focus remains the same: teaching students in a new way.
This year, senior Chris Eley wants to use social media to rally and expand the school’s student section, or Blue Crew, during football and basketball games. Eley would like to study sports management, and he’s working with other students in the innovations course to shoot, edit and post online video of student rallies.
