Home - DreamreaderDreamreader Programme Scolaire Américain : Les Matières Étudiées aux USA Même si les matières principales (« subjects ») sont quasiment identiques aux nôtres, leur façon de les étudier est très différente. Selon les écoles et à partir de collège, les programmes pédagogiques varient ; toutes les écoles américaines ont des matières obligatoires (compulsory classes) et des matières complémentaires et optionnelles (elective classes) mais pas forcément au même moment durant la scolarité. En effet, il faut avoir accumulé un certain nombre de crédits et d’années de cours pour chaque matière, mais une matière ne correspond pas forcément à un niveau scolaire précis. Par exemple, si le nombre de crédits accumulés pour les maths est suffisant à la fin de la seconde ou de la première, l’élève n’aura plus cette matière jusqu’à la fin du lycée. De ce fait, les élèves ne sont pas non plus regroupés en « classes » fixes ; en même temps qu’ils changent de matières chaque heure de cours, ils changent généralement de camarades également.
