Thursday, May 2, 2013 was Nonconformity Day, which was created by American Literature 1 Honors teacher Alison Fordice. Nonconformity Day is a project based on the ideas in Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Self-Reliance. Students are required to think and write about what their community, their peers, and their teachers expect of them and then act in a way contrary to those expectations for the entire day. This year, students displayed interesting insights into their individuality, including a student who wore a T-shirt on his head, a girl who carried scissors, and two girls who wore black lipstick. According to Ms. Fordice, the freshmen learned how “self-analysis can be so revealing.”
