7 Choosing Courses Three Class Formats: Academic Challenging work on grade level, prepares students for college, gives more class time to review concepts with teacher support Pre-AP Academically advanced work, designed to challenge motivated students, faster paced, more homework, and increased student independence and responsibility GT Requires previous identification and screening in accordance with KISD guidelines

8 Choosing Courses Students may choose a combination of class formats. For example, a student may request Pre-AP English and Reading, and Academic Math, Science, and Social Studies. Students considering Pre-AP courses should have earned A s and B s in that course in elementary. Class placement should be a decision made by the parent, student, current teachers, and elementary school counselor.

9 Choosing Courses Things to consider when selecting a course level: 1. Past grades in school and junior high grade expectations 2. Motivation and attitude 3. Standardized test scores 4. Study habits 5. Willingness to complete homework 6. Outside interests and activities 7. Ease at catching on to new material 8. Independence and responsibility level
