The program is truly adaptive to the needs and preferences of the student.

Peer Tutoring 11

Other

This Blended course is a combination of research, self-reflection, tutoring and applying what you have learned.

Teaching and tutoring are not methods to give students answers, but to help them understand the process of learning.  For example, if you give a child a cookie – do they know how to make cookies?  No, but if you teach them how to make cookies, they will then make their own cookies and eventually will have the confidence to make something different – they may eventually make their own recipes and become a chef!  But, that will not happen if you only give them cookies – or answers.

Psychology 12

Other

This introductory psychology course examines principles, approaches, and perspectives that psychologists use in their studies to explain human behavior and mental processes. As students investigate key topics and review some case studies, they gain an understanding of themselves as well as other people. Some of the unit topics include neuroscience, sensation and perception, states of consciousness, learning and motivation, and personality and psychological disorders. And by exploring a topic of personal interest, students broaden their understanding of this discipline, sharpen their own perspective, and develop better critical thinking and research skills.
