Learning for Life, Not for Labor or Grades

Learning for Life--not for labor or grades

EDUC 401R

SLN: 13742

Time: Mondays, 1:30-2:50

Location: MGH 288

Class Starts 9/29

Facilitator:  Che Sehyunche7@u.washington.edu

This seminar is designed as an eye-opening, mind-training, smile-making, community-building experience that teaches students how to use the school experience to develop more fundamental life skills, such as concentration, awareness, understanding and ease of body & mind. Students will not only learn these fundamental life skills, but will also benefit from them immediately in their studies by learning how to effectively take notes, problem-solve, prepare for exams and write evidence-based arguments.  It is said that experience is the best teacher and that the best students are the ones who teach what they’re learning—so this seminar also provides students a tutoring opportunity (and dance lessons) at a community center run by Massive Monkees, a world renown hip-hop dance group, where we will work with local middle & high school students and local non-profits.  We provide the material, training, opportunity, support and experience to unearth your fullest potential—can you dig it?
