Dear Honors Students:
If you earned an A or B in General Chemistry courses (CHM 2045 or CHM 2046), have some time on Friday mornings, and would like to help other students in a unique leadership practice, then Peer Leading for Chemistry (CHM 4932) is an excellent upper-level course to consider for the upcoming Spring semester.
CHM 4932 will give you the tools to guide students in General Chemistry I to help them succeed. The course will raise questions both about chemistry and the teaching of chemistry. You will develop a deeper understanding of fundamental chemistry concepts and improve your oral and written communication skills. This course is also an excellent opportunity to review for big exams, such as MCAT, PCAT, DAT, GRE, etc.
Interested? Please contact Dr. Laura Anderson at: email@example.com for more details about the course and registration process.
