Deer entrails give learning an emotional, real-world kick for HHS students

Harrisonburg High School teacher Myron Blosser’s educational philosophy is as follows: “Any time you do something you build more emotion than when you just see or read something.”

This Wednesday, that “doing something” had his students piled into the small radiology room at The Wildlife Center of Virginia in Waynesboro, peering x-ray images displayed on a computer.

“Yep,” one student called to Blosser, who was crowded out into the hallway. “This one’s got lead in it.”
