Two 2nd 8 weeks courses at the SAC

EDUC-X150: “Read-Learn Techniques 1”

VT: Becoming the Best Student

This course is an 8-week “academic booster shot” for freshmen and sophomores who need to quickly and drastically ramp-up their performance in all their classes and become the best students they can be. Instructors will assist in the development of a series of attitudes essential to making this transformation happen. Students will learn to use these attitudes to build individually-tailored and maximally effective skills in time management, note taking, studying, test-taking strategies, and critical thinking.

EDUC-X152: “Read-Learn Techniques 3”

VT: Learning Strategies for the New College Student

Special Topic: New Orleans and Hurricane Katrina

This 2-credit, small (10-19 students), 8 week seminar is the total package.  We work on the rapid development of college-level skills, focusing specifically on critical thinking and argument.  At the same time, we use an incredibly rich topic to develop these skills: the culture of New Orleans and Hurricane Katrina.  We study the history, geography, and cultural forms of the city (including food, music, and Mardi Gras) as well as varying perspectives on Katrina.  It’s really a chance to try out a whole bunch of different disciplines while studying an extremely interesting subject and working on skills students can transfer to any of their classes.
