I've been filling out course selection cards for my soon-to-be sophomore twins. When I was in high school (I know... back in the "dark" ages) we could choose typing, psychology, sociology, journalism, homemaking, shop class, agriculture, accounting, and that was just about it. I wish they'd had more of these courses I would have liked to take!
1. American Sign Language - I'm glad our state has finally recognized this as an actual language. My daughter will take her second year next fall, and she loves it!
2. Architectural Design - They actually get to learn how to use AutoCAD programs!
3. Audio-Video Production
5. Creative Writing - I had to wait until my sophomore year of college to take a class like this.
6. Digital and Interactive Multi-Media
7. Fashion Design
8. Fashion Marketing
9. Forensic Science
10. Medical Terminology - My senior daughter took this last year and loved it.
11. Media Literacy Film Criticism
12. Web Technologies
13. World Heath Research
I probably would have enjoyed any of these electives! My, how things have changed! What was your favorite elective in high school? Click here for more Thursday 13!
