English Department Summer Reading

English Department Course Selection


    It is time for current students to make course selections for the 2018-2019 academic year.  In addition to the required English 1, 2, and 3 courses, we also offer many electives to meet students' varied educational needs and interests in the English Language Arts.  The SD#308 Course Catalog is a great source for information!
    In the early weeks of November, students spoke with their current English teachers about next year's course options. All English teachers made course recommendations in Home Access, and these should be available to students and parents in that system.  We encourage both students and parents to contact current English teachers for assistance in selecting a course if there are questions. 


    Our SD#308 Journalism Program includes English elective courses that require an application for enrollment.  These courses include:
    Digital Journalism 1
    Digital Journalism 2
    Yearbook Journalism 1
    Yearbook Journalism 2

    Please click on the following link to submit an online application for a 2018-2019 journalism course:  SD#308 Journalism Program Application.  This application is a universal application, meaning that a student may apply for any of the journalism courses through this one application.  To submit this application, students should be prepared with: 


    - accessing the link through SD#308 Gmail address (StudentID#@students.sd308.org)

    - your personal contact information
