At/TON EVENING TELEGftAPH WEDNESDAY, AuGtfSf 14,1933 Monticello 1 * •• , ' » Challenges Mbntlcello challenges her ac ademlcally sufSerior students wit a specially designed Honor course, according to Dr. Dunca Wlnipress, president. First introduced four years ago this course Is now an Integra Jjart of Monticello's strong liber al arts program. Before introducing the presen Version of honors work, Monti cello provided honors sections ii various courses and provided th superior student with acceleratec Work to meet her rate of progress However, there seemed to be the need for an organized program that was inter-related and stil challenging, so that the studeni could gain even more from her education. After much work and carefu planning, Monticello entered het newly designed honors course in to. the curriculum in the fall o: 1959. This course went far be yond the concept and scope of tb segregated honors sections usec earlier and in use at other in stitutions, he said. "The new approach was unique to Monticello and no other institution had comparable program at the leve of the first two years of college.' Called 'Imaginative' In 1959, a North Central As .sociation Junior College accredit ing them visited Monticello anc called this new course "imaginative." Students enrolled in the course praised the course as being "an excellent opportunity to do individual study under the tu torial system .... a stimulating experience generally reserved foi upperclassmen in four year colleges and graduate schools," and "It provides us with an early opportunity to get 'inside 1 education and to study its vital pillars of philosophy." Each year students that have taken this course relate almost identical comments in its favor, only the wordking might change, Dr. Wimpress said. Having seen this course in ac- tiofl many other institutions have requested outlines of the Monticello's honors course to adapt to their particular curriculum. The course is a six-credit course for carefully selected second-year college students and it 1 is aimed at providing the academically superior student with (1) sufficient challenge to bring her as nearly as possible to her full academic potential, (2) opportunity to learn to appreciate and understand better the values by which we live, (3) Opportunity to experience tutorial learning, (4) opportunity to share ideas with other academically superior students and with faculty members, (5) opportunity to learn to pursue independent investigations, and (6) opportunity to learn to take advantage of many and var-; ied resource areas. Deeper Understanding Cutting across and relating the several academic disciplines, the course seeks to bring to each student a deeper understanding of Western thought on man's relationship to himself, to his fellow man, to his family, to his country, and to his God, said Dr. Wimpress. "While each student approaches the problems studied, from the point of view of her major subject matter area, the course causes her to see and un- tween her areas of interest and other academic disciplines." To augment regular study arid group discussions, each week .of the academic year a guest speaker is brought to the college to lecture in his profession^ area to the members of the course. These series of guest lectures provide the students with the opportunity of hearing varied versions of subject mattsr and to establish her own relative conclusions after comparing and contrasting the material she has heard. Later, these lectures are discussed by the group and also each student discusses with hei tutor or advisor the content and conclusions arrived at by correlating all available data. Final Kesearch Paper One of the end results of this course is a research paper compiled by each student in her major area of interest, using t h e broad and technical material di gested from the year's lecture series as one of the many founda tions for her paper, he said. The research paper is not the final product of the student's work, for she must know her sub ject matter thoroughly nnd bi able to defend any statement shi makes in the paper. This pape: must be defended orally before a board of professors and the! queries, This final test of the stu dent's abilities and accomplish ments has no equal in showing the progress made by the studen over the academic year, Pi WJwpress concluded.
