lecture/discussion or read a text.

to identify major business themes.

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
an 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.
