The Storm Lake High School will offer two new English elective courses.
Principal Beau Ruleaux told the school board they surveyed students, and found interest in Films as Literature and British Literature. He said the semester-long classes are aimed at juniors and seniors, and would not require any additional staff.
Superintendent Carl Turner noted the high school is getting so big, more electives are needed…although board member Dave Skibsted said he’s not sure with these two classes they’re reaching out to all students.
Ruleaux said it’s not very expensive to get copies of the movies to be shown in the film class, and most of the British Lit books can be found on the internet.
