Look at the music and art courses, listed in the left row of courses. If you are currently taking Chorus, mark out (eliminate) Beginning Chorus. See the next slide.
Now look at the last column, on the right side of your card. If you have taken ONE year of Computer Skills (or Keyboarding) in the sixth or seventh grade, mark out Computer Skills & Applications P1. See the next slide.
