Choosing electives is not always easy, and some students struggle with which course will best suit them. This doesn’t have to be a hard task at all. With the course selection deadline approaching in a couple of weeks for current sophomores and juniors, students are most likely stressing out about making the best choice. Maybe they need advice from a student on what elective would be best or maybe they just need help from a guidance counselor.
Here are some ideas for incoming juniors and incoming seniors. First read through the list and pick out the courses that are related to hobbies you have or subjects that intrigue you. Then figure out where your learning levels are and choose a good class you would feel comfortable in or a class that you think will challenge you. The choice is yours. Your guidance counselor will be able to help you best.
