Course Description

This course has been designed with the purpose of providing students with the necessary skills and abilities to successfully and effectively learn business concepts introduced in BUS-A100.  Assignments are tailored to parallel those in A100 and are designed to (1) create a foundation for future business courses by providing you with sound and effective study skills, (2) facilitate studying for the exams, and (3) provide accountability and feedback on each student’s learning.

Course Objectives

  • Become more active learners who take control of their own learning by anticipating the upcoming lecture/discussion, summarizing the most recent lecture/discussion, and formulating questions they hope will be answered as they attend a lecture/discussion or read a text.
  • Improve reading efficiency by learning how to read different sorts of business texts actively, strategically, and critically to identify major business themes.
  • Transform the text and lecture/discussion information by writing summaries, creating cognitive maps and/or time lines, and verbalizing what they have learned and what they do not fully comprehend.
  • Develop study skills such as note taking, preparing for exams, time management, and goal setting.
  • Analyze their own thinking and learning by becoming aware of what they know, need to know, and are learning so they can relate new information to prior knowledge.
  • Learn to work collaboratively with other students through X152 student discussion of lecture/reading notes and the formulation of smaller study groups specifically geared toward the study of accounting.
