Not really because then they would be choosing subjects that wouldn't really be important in later life just so that they can be with their friends. I mean it's great that they wanna spend time with their friends, but if all they're going to do is choose the classes that do nothing...then...what's the point of going to school at all?
Yes I do! I'm from South Africa and we choose our own subjects in High School!
NO.......everyone would be in music class and art
No, they are not mature enough.
I think both
maybe. Could I recommend English?
LIKE TO LEARN HOW TO SPELL SHOULD? YES THEY SHOOD.....OR THEYL LEARN TO SPELL LIKE YOU.....AND ME!
half and half they must take a few subjects and the other half they can choose their electives. that;s how it was where I went to school.that's the best so they can find out their own personal interests and talents so it will be easier for them to choose a vocation/career or a major in college. having a major from the beginning in college makes it so much easier to go.
i totally agree with u. they should choose they're own subjects. im going to middle school next week and i want to pick my subjects!
If they do well in the basics, they "should" be given the opportunity to choose other subjects.
Spelling class is extremely underrated.
I think English, Math, Science, History should be mandatory and elective classes should be Music, Art, Foreign Language, Physical Education, Vocational and Tech courses, Home Economics, Business courses.
I believe that certain subjects should form the core of a students education in high school and middle school. I think that elective classes have their place after these subjects are addressed. In no particular order: World History, American History/Government, English, Physics, Biology and basic Mathematics should be the foundation of any education. These subjects give a student the basic tools to understand their world and express themselves. Foreign languages, music and art appreciation for their own sake, and a host of other important and beneficial classes may be factored in to compliment or supplement these goals, but they must be addressed. The number of people who lack the means to understand their physical world or interpret current events through the eyes of history all the while wielding the English language like a cudgel is as staggering as it is appalling.
YES absolutly maybe this would help students actually understand what they are studying because it is something they are interested in and also if there schedule was something that they wanted they may be more happy to be in school or happy about the classes that they have chosen which may help them with their grades! Making things easier on the students wouldnt be such a bad idea!!
Should, should, should not....What are your parents here for...just to buy you stuff??
I think they should be able to which classes to take but they should be a requirement about what subjects.
For example they have to take an English, math and science class but they get to choose which one based on there interests. Like algebra, geometry or calculus and biology, physical science or chemistry
That way they could choose the one that interests them the most and they would actually try. Many students don't try in there classes because they don't interest them.
It would also be easier to meet college and high school requirements. With the new requirements to graduate plus the requirements of different schools to attend there it's practically impossible to do them all. This way we'd have more time to do things that interest us while still meeting high school and college requirements.
I don't think that middle school students should choose their own subjects in school, because when in middle school a child is highly influenced by their peers. So when a middle school student is faced with the decision to choose a PE class over an English class, guess which one they will choose if their friends and most of the other students are signing up for the PE class? Also the classes that you take in middle school set you up to take the upper, middle, or lower level classes in high school. So it is highly advised that a middle school student who wants to take the higher level classes in high school take the classes, which are often not the most popular classes in middle school, that will challenge them in middle school. As for the high school students, I believe that it depends on their maturity level, and what they want to do after high school. Also high school students need to make sure that they choose the courses that satisfy the graduation requirements for their state. One last thing parents should make sure that they know what is going on with their child, as far as the classes they take, and what their child plans to do after high school, basically they need to be proactive.
