Finding Your Voice

In this College Connections course we will explore active ways to express your voice in the classroom. As you navigate your first term at the University of Oregon, our group will experiment with creative strategies for discussion and presentation in order to develop on your unique perspective as a student scholar and to enhance your work in COLT 101 and TA 271. We will use activities from theater, along with varied approaches to reading/writing, to engage with content or classroom dynamics. Throughout the term, you will track your individual exploration as research and will build toward a final presentation.
