Academy of Science and Entrepreneurship English 11
As part of Monroe County Community School Corporation’s Academy of Science and Entrepreneurship — a New Technology High School — the English 11 class explores and studies literature and composition using multiple pathways as a way to enrich their knowledge and apply their learning in a variety of situations.
The annual “Sense of Place” project by students at The Academy of Science and Entrepreneurship shows “a sliver of each student’s identity,” writes student Richelle Elkes. But each student’s video, she adds, “gives the viewer a greater understanding of the young people in the community and how their values affect the community of Bloomington.”

Each fall since 2016, students in Rachel Bahr’s class at Bloomington’s Academy of Science and Entrepreneurship have completed a class project, called "Sense of Place," and shared their work with Limestone Post. The "places" covered in this year's videos include a quarry, a corn maze, a grandparents’ farm, neighborhoods, parks, and even the activity of creating art. Click here to watch all 16 videos.
For the third straight year, students in Rachel Bahr’s English 11 class at the Academy of Science and Entrepreneurship have explored a specific place that has special meaning to them — from their own backyard to Griffy Lake to high above the city. In 15 immersive audio tours, they each share their unique sense of place. Click here to watch their videos!

Rachel Bahr assigned her high school English class at the Academy of Science and Entrepreneurship to take photos of places in Bloomington and write descriptions about their “sense of place.” The project, called “This Is Where,” shows how personal, poignant, and different each person’s sense of place can be.
