Elective classes

This is my opinion about the elective classes we are forced to do in 6th and 7th grade and how we should have free choice about it :)

I feel that during the middle school its not fair that us 6th and 7th grade students are REQUIRED to do some of the elective classes and its and ELECTIVE.The word elective means and OPTIONAL, or NON requirement class, and right now that is not what im seeing. I have asked 6th grade students around the school about a certain class called tech and a large amount say that its not a very fun class. its definatly not fun when you are forced to do projects on your weekend. Its more of a class that involves a lot of hard work in and out of class. All that im trying to say is that next year for the kids that are just starting middle school should be able to have a fun elective class and not have to stress out. they should make a very usefull class like a tutoring class where during there extra class they can work on assignments they might need help with or might not be able to do after school. a lot of kids have after school activities like sports and are not able to finish homework and end up getting an F for this. i dont think that is all that fair. Thank you for reading my message :)

I totally agree, because 8th graders get to choose what electives they want but for 6th and 7th graders they don't get to choose, which is not what an elective is supposed to be. As you said an ELECTIVE is where you get to CHOOSE a class not get it assigned. :) Again I agree with your statement!!

This blog was not written in 6th grade Journalism.. It needs editing. We do not quote surveys like this in our reports because we work to give our readers accurate facts.
