荣誉 Course Design

通常在高中时,荣誉学生首先考虑的是大学或学院的荣誉教育, 他们可能不愿意承担他们认为将是额外的工作,或者比已经快节奏的大学教育更快速的版本.

但是大学荣誉课程的设计并不是为了让学生更加努力学习. It is truly student-centered education. 它旨在为学生提供一种教育,帮助他们发展自己的想法,而不是简单地让他们反馈信息. 它是关于在开放交流的气氛中讨论问题和鼓励创新, where students' views are respected. 荣誉 programs emphasize diverse perspectives, interdisciplinary course work, small classes, 和 greater interaction between students 和 professors. 荣誉教育是学会清楚地思考,写得好,深思地辩论. 它是关于开发学生最大的智力潜力.

最后, 学生们应该记住,他们在大学的大部分课程不会是荣誉课程. They will be courses in their major or free electives.

荣誉 Course Simplified

为了简单起见,对教师的定义是由美世的荣誉协调员描述的. 荣誉 is a traditional course plus an "H-Factor."

这通常意味着荣誉生会阅读更多的初级文本,并通过写作和项目来评估,而不是通过答题卡测试. The class is also not conducted by lecture.
