English Department Course Selection


    It is time for current students to make course selections for the 2019-2020 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!
    Students have received recommendations for English courses from their current English teacher.  All English teachers made course recommendations in Home Access, and these will 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, and Yearbook Journalism 2.

    Please click on the following link to submit an online application for a 2019-2020 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 to: 


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

    - provide interests and strengths in journalism

    - submit the name of an OHS English teacher who may serve as a reference

    Should you have questions about this application or English course selection, please contact your guidance counselor or the English Department Chair, Dr. Amy Howerton.
