Seminar is a one hour class every Wednesday, every week, for the next 4 years of High School. It is an hour that gives students a chance to prepare for their future endeavours in either college or the real world. It also doubles as an hour where students who seek help in some classes can reccive it from teachers. But, there is a down side. Every week, Seminar offers a new activity to all students. Seminar is also a pass / fail credit class. Every week, when handed an assignment, many students write down answers that may not make sense or choose not to do the assignment at all. They do this because nobody checks the assignment. As long as you finish it and have some sort of answer down, you get credit for the class. I believe this is extremely unnecessary and pointless for the fact that there is no point in assigning weekly assignments without making sure they are done correctly. So here is what I am proposing. Seminar is great in the aspect that struggling students can reccive the help that they need. But I believe the work is unnecessary. I believe that Seminar should be a class where students can work on other tasks, such as required core class homework, or help and tutor other students in their class that may be struggling. And if the student needs extra help, they can be sent to a teacher that can get them the help that they need. Seminar has potenital to be something great, but mainly for the reason that it can get students the help that they need, and the help that they deserve.
