Junior High Electives Provide Students Choice Classes
Here at CCSD59, we strongly recognize the importance of allowing students to help facilitate their own learning. Students who are able to provide input and feedback in what and how they learn are often happier and more engaged in their studies.
At the junior high level in all CCSD59 schools, students have the option, through exploratory classes, to select electives based on their talents, passions, or interests. By choosing their elective classes, students are able to not only pursue subjects they want to learn more about, but also have the experience of assisting in determining their own course of study. This could be a very valuable experience for high school and/or college course planning, where students often have more freedom in making selections for their coursework.
