HN 393L Honors Preceptorial: DIY

Many people agree that the best way to learn something is to teach it to yourself and then to someone else. It is this ideology that underlies the offering of Honors Preceptorial. At the end of this class, students should feel empowered to answer and master any topic or problem presented to them. In order for this to happen, in this class students pick the topic of the course (with some restrictions), create a course outline, research units, design learning objectives, create lesson plans, and then teach and assess one another. The professor guides and facilitates this process. Students learn how to learn. The take responsibility for their own motivation and enable others to be motivated. They use their creativity to innovate lessons plans to accomplish objectives and create a classroom that is fair and equitable and respectful of the leadership learning objectives of the class.
