Teenagers today live in a world where having choices is the norm. For instance, Los Alamos High School English teacher Margo Batha explained nowadays, when youngsters listen to music on their iPods, they can select which songs to listen to and which ones to ignore. This example supports the fact that having choices is an intrinsic part of young people’s lives.
During the school board meeting Tuesday night, a group of English teachers showed how they are following the iPod’s lead.
Batha, along with fellow English teachers Michelle Holland and David Buckland successfully argued for the board’s approval of these changes in English courses offered at the high school.
Buckland explained many of the current English courses are about to sunset or expire, which allows them to offer different courses.
It began with an idea formed last year to have the sophomore English class become more of a genre and skills-based class to align with the freshmen English course, he said.
