Study Skills Workshop: Strategies for Smarter Note-Taking

We all know we should be taking notes in class—after all, when we head home at night, those notes are the tangible things we take with us—but many of us don't really know how to take effective notes or how to use the notes we do take. This hour-long session will help you change all that, giving you tips, strategies, and techniques for better note-taking that will help you succeed at The Academy but also—and more importantly—out in the rest of the world, too.

Class: World Religions

This eight-week Friday enrichment class is designed to promote religious literacy by introducing students to the texts, traditions, and practices of major world religions, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Daoism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. This is a secular class, emphasizing philosophy and tradition.

In addition to five formal class sessions, this class includes one book club and two movie day sessions. The book club and movie days are optional (and open to students who are not participating in the World Religions class), but we encourage students to attend these sessions if they can since they are set up to complement and deepen topics discussed in class.
