ATLA Foundations Introduction to College: Advanced Research and Study Skills

ATLA Foundations Introduction to College: Advanced Research and Study Skills

This course prepares recent high school graduates to make the transition to college life both academically and personally. Academically, students will first experience a crash course on what is required to write, research, and read at a college level. They will also learn the art of counterarguments and other tools that will help them surpass the expectations of any given writing assignment. Furthermore, students will learn how to navigate a working relationship with professors and teaching assistants, how to interpret a syllabus, and how to take advantage of the academic resources available to them. For many students, college will be their first experience living with greater autonomy. This course will also provide students with an understanding of the practical skills necessary to survive and thrive at college: time management, study skills, and study/work/social balance. Finally, all students will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with each of the instructors teaching the course to receive individually tailored guidance as they prepare for this next step on their educational journey.
