What’s Your Favorite Class?
When students enjoy their classes, they are more engaged. And, greater student engagement in classes means better and deeper learning, and fuller retention of the course materials. At Stride Career Prep, our students are highly involved in their classes, and they get a lot out of their immersive educational experiences. Here, our Student Advisors share what it is they love about some of their favorite classes.
“My favorite class is Adobe Photoshop. Everything about it is special! I love Adobe programs. Getting to work in them daily, while learning new tips and tricks, is so much fun for me. The class is unique because the teacher loves teaching using the program, and does not prefer having everyone learn by reading massive amounts of text.” ~ Brittany Wagoner
“My favorite class with Stride Career Prep has been Business and Marketing, which I took last year. This has been my favorite class because we were always interacting with each other. The teacher would always engage us with our classmates, and with her.” ~ Gabby Rodriguez
“My absolute favorite class I have taken is my Game Design class. This class is very special to me because I enjoy coding a lot. I really wanted to take a class that canto help me understand coding, and move into more advanced coding. This class did a good job at teaching me, while also keeping it very fun and exciting. This class felt very different compared tofrom the other classes I have taken. It let my creativity flow without many limits.” ~ Isaiah Gutierrez
Stride Career Prep classes teach more than just the basics of the materials; the classes teach the why and how behind core concepts, for broader learning and a more cohesive student experience.
“My favorite class I’ve taken through Stride K12 has been my Honors American Literature Class. I have always had a passion for literature and writing, but most of my English classes disappointed me. We would be handed books to read that I knew were important to the history and literary movements, but my teachers never explained why. I was always just handed books and expected to read them. Without the explanation of why what I read was important, I slowly became bored of English as a subject and felt burned out… However, my Honors American Literature Class changed this. The entire class focused on explaining the why. The philosophy, the history, and the movements behind the books I read were finally explained to me.” ~ Kat Collver
“My favorite Stride Career Prep class is American Literature. I took this class during my sophomore year, and it was awesome. As a class, we read a lot of classic American literature, such as The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane. After we read a novel, we wrote essays, had group discussions, and dove deeper into the history behind the author and the novelbook. I have always loved to read, and although historical or classic literature weren’t my favorite genres, I think that reading the classics is an agreeable goal. I learned how to analyze text. I also learned how to value books that changed the viewpoint on American authors.” ~ Lily Perkins
“My favorite class is Math. What makes this class special? I’m always learning something new. My teacher has always told us to have a growth mindset. We are always doingconstantly do things on the whiteboard, which makesmaking learning even more fun. I have learned how to interact with other students.” ~ Rachel Dyer
“The Digital Arts class I am currently taking is a project-based-learning (PBL) course, where we learn mostlyprimarily through projects, instead of completing traditional lessons and quizzes… What makes this class special to me is that it involves doing creative tasks I enjoy. I can prepare for a visual arts career by learning how to design my own graphics and have yet to learn more about design.” ~ Raizelle Sunga
