1 Incoming 8 th Grade Course Selection Information for Beckendorff Junior High

2 Course Selection Materials Blue course selection packet Course Selection Worksheet Pre-AP Parent Commitment Letter Parent Letter Copy of Power Point Presentation

3 Course Requests Overview Course sheets must be turned in to Social Studies Teachers by January 29 th. If you are moving or planning to move, you must still fill out and turn in a course selection sheet. Both the student and parent must sign the course sheet. If you are signing up for Pre-AP classes, both student and parent must also sign the Pre-AP commitment letter on the back of the course selection sheet. Counselors will meet individually with every student through Social Studies classes the week of February 12 th -16 th. All students must sign up for the following courses: 1. English 2. Math 3. Social Studies 4. Science 5. PE or Athletics 6. Two electives and three alternate electives

4 Choosing Courses Class formats: Academic- Challenging work- for everyone, on grade level, more time to review concepts Pre-AP- More challenging courses, fast-paced, and more homework Students must maintain a 70% or higher each 6 weeks to remain in the Pre-AP class. Must demonstrate mastery on course-related state-mandated performance assessments including STAAR ( Meets grade level or Masters grade level ) GT- Students must be screened and identified to be eligible for GT courses.

5 Gifted and Talented Program Students who are currently being screened should not request GT classes. You can only sign up for the ones for which you have qualified. Counselors will get a list of who qualifies and make those changes. You will not need to request a change it will happen. If you HAVE qualified for GT classes, you must sign up for them or you will be exited. To get back in later would require another screening.

6 Choosing Courses You will most likely sign up for courses similar to what you had in 7 th grade. Consider the following when choosing which class level to sign up for: Past grades in school and the kind of grades you would like to make Motivation and attitude Standardized test scores Study habits Willingness to complete homework Outside interests and activities How quickly you catch on to new material Independence level

7 Choosing a Math Level Concepts taught are the foundation for all higher level math courses and therefore should not be rushed 8th grade Academic - on grade level curriculum Math homework is given each night to practice concepts 8 th grade Pre-AP- on grade level curriculum with more rigor and higher performance expectations A new concept is learned each day Math homework is given each night to practice concepts Algebra 1 Must complete 7 th grade Math Pre-AP with a year average of 75 or higher High school credit course Math homework is given each night to practice concepts Geometry- Must successfully complete Algebra 1 in 7 th grade High school credit course Math homework is given each night to practice concepts

8 Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies The difference in academic and Pre-AP for language arts, science, and social studies comes in the resources/materials used and performance expectations. Pre-AP is built upon the core academic curriculum and is designed to build student capacity to understand more rigorous content. Pre-AP is designed to help prepare students for advanced courses in high school.

9 Possible Required Courses Math Lab designed to help refine basic math skills and help with preparation for STAAR Read 180 designed to help improve reading level and help with STAAR skills You will be required to attend one or both of these if you do not pass that portion of STAAR.

If you participate in 15 or more hours, you may be released from campus after 7 th period.
