Tiger Learning Skills.
Coole, Walter A.
This learning skills program was developed for the Open Classroom, an auto-tutorial learning laboratory at Skagit Valley College (Washington). The four-unit course is designed to develop basic academic skills other than reading, including: (I) following instructions; (II) listening; (III) taking notes; and (IV) self-direction. The core course begins in a conventional small group format, meeting three days per week. After the completion of Unit III, the meeting schedule is reduced to once per week. Units I-III are scheduled to be completed early in the term, and are pursued outside the class meetings as homework. Unit IV begins at the first or second meeting without a fixed schedule of completion. Additional work, to be completed to achieve higher grades, is organized into the Tiger Learning Project File. The masters for the file are supplied in this document on 8 1/2" by 11" stock, but copies may be cut to 5" by 8" card stock. The project file is designed to enable the student to apply his newly acquired learning skills to his ongoing course work. Thus, units are provided to correspond with the whole range of academic disciplines. Parts of the course syllabus are designed to be used in conjunction with two different textbooks and various recorded materials. (NHM)
