Increasing Access to "a-g" Curriculum
What does a sample “a-g” high school program look like?
There are infinite possibilities in building a high school course of study for your students to meet the “a-g” requirements. When contructing these schedules, be sure to maximize students' options for the future. For example, some courses may give students credit toward completion of a career pathway program as well as fulfill "a-g" requirements. Be sure to discuss all options with both students and parents. For tips on this, head to sections 7 through 10 of "Transcript Evaluation." For an interactive class assignment with students, the math lesson "How Many Ways" allows you and your students to see just how many possibilities there are at your school.
