A new class at a Texas high-school will offer students a chance to earn better grades, as they try to avoid becoming too hard on themselves.
The new class is aimed at making students more comfortable in class with teacher assistance and tutoring, and is a joint effort by the school district and a non-profit.
The teacher-led class will be part of the eighth grade class at Trinity-Fulton Academy in Fort Worth, the district said.
It will offer three different types of classes: a science course that will focus on topics like biology, chemistry, physics and more; a mathematics course that focuses on basic math; and a history course that examines topics like slavery and slavery abolition.
The goal is to give students more of a balance in the class, the Texas Education Agency said.
