Can you string a bow?
Freshman English teacher Jennifer Kim's class is learning about Homer's The Odyssey, and so she invited Kathy Langdon Phoenix to demonstrate to Kim's students Thursday how to string a bow. (Near the end of the Greek epic poem, Odysseus in the guise of a beggar strings his own bow as part of a challenge that his wife, Penelope, arranged.) Phoenix is an interpreter for one of Kim's students, who is deaf. Photos take by Accolade photographer Annie Choi.
During fifth period Thursday, freshman Ian Whedon attempts to pull the bow and hook the string at the top end with assistance from Phoenix, who brought in her father's bow that he uses to hunt.
Another freshman, a barefooted Mary-Grace Rovira, takes her shot at stringing the bow.
As the last person to try it, freshman Johnathan Mitri easily hooks the string to the top of the bow
