DPS High School English Electives

In an effort to strengthen advocacy efforts on behalf of English teachers with elective courses, I would like to begin the process of collecting and creating curriculum overviews and course maps that reflect the key outcomes, modes of assessment, and instructional resources for each elective course.

Taught an elective for years? Teaching a new elective now?

Join the discussion to build out some curriculum supports for all HS English elective teachers in DPS...

If you are interested in helping forge the path for DPS electives curriculum, please email me.
