Module I: Engaging Academic Inquiry


Module I is a move into the academy, helping students develop critical academic skills and learn how major disciplinary approaches of the academy make sense of the world, while learning important content from particular disciplines within each approach.

Two key goals of Module I are to get students interested in the questions that drive academic inquiry and to experience how scholars go about trying to find answers to those questions.  These will help students make the transition to college, but also help prepare them to be curious, life-long learners—interested in important and meaningful questions and able to understand and evaluate knowledge claims from a variety of perspectives.
