Senior Humanities Seminar: Dual Enrollment through a Different Lens
Zeek, Sara
Inquiry, v12 n1 p38-46 Spr 2007
Cross-curricular instruction, multi-disciplinary study, interdisciplinary learning, reading and writing across the curriculum, thematic instruction, integrated learning--are these just the latest buzz words, more education-speak, the latest trend? Or are they more than that? In Botetourt County at the Greenfield Education Center, these words have specific meaning. Through a cooperative effort among two community colleges and a public school system, the faculty members have put concepts of interdisciplinary instruction into practice in a dual-enrollment offering called Senior Humanities Seminar. Seniors from James River High School and Lord Botetourt High School (both in Botetourt County) take six courses over the school year, earning a total of eighteen college credits before graduating from high school. Seminar, as it has been tagged, combines the service areas of Virginia Western Community College (VWCC) and Dabney S. Lancaster Community College (DSLCC) and offers students the opportunity to create meaning among the different humanities offerings through an integrated curriculum.
