RUMFORD — Mountain Valley Middle School seventh-grade students recently displayed projects they created in seminar, a collaborative language arts class between the library and the art program in which students can extend their learning.

Students chose topics about which they had strong opinions, and then found out whether the facts supported or disproved those opinions. Topics included teen drivers, violence in video games, smoking, stereotypes and Bigfoot. More information and photos can be found on the MVMS Facebook page at

In one project, Sa’lyn Knowlton showed what she learned through sculpture.

In another, Wendy Ducas surveyed people to see if she could tell their musical preference based on their personality. She found that musical tastes and personality are not related.
