Summary: (Show / Hide)
Honors and Honors Option courses challenge talented students with expanded opportunities for intellectual and personal growth. Honors courses contain only honors students; classes are usually small and discussion-oriented. In Honors Option courses, both honors and nonhonors students attend the same class sections. Honors students in these classes work independently with the instructor on honors projects.
When you are awarded honors credit in a class, that class is annotated on your academic transcript.
This is a Texas Common Course Number. This is a Pre-Core Curriculum course selected by the colleges of DCCCD.
Prerequisite Required: College level ready in Reading.
Course Description: This interdisciplinary course addresses (1) research and theory in learning, cognition, and motivation; (2) factors that impact learning; and (3) application of learning strategies. Theoretical models of strategic learning, cognition, and motivation serve as the conceptual basis for the introduction of college-level student academic strategies. Students use assessment instruments (e.g., learning inventories) to help them identify their own strengths and weaknesses as strategic learners. Students are ultimately expected to integrate and apply learning skills discussed in the course. Students developing these skills should be able to continually draw from the theoretical models. Critical thinking serves as the foundation for different thematic approaches using a variety of academic disciplines. This course is cross-listed as PSYC 1300. The student may register for either EDUC 1300 or PSYC 1300 but may receive credit for only one of the two. (3 Lec.)
