Syracuse University Project Advance
April 29, 2014 - Hoosic Valley is very excited to announce their new partnership with Syracuse University. Syracuse University Project Advance (SUPA) gives Hoosic Valley students the opportunity to take college classes and earn Syracuse University credit. SUPA courses use the same curriculum as those taught to Syracuse freshman and sophomores. Our teachers will become certified SU adjunct professors by attending summer workshops and seminars throughout the year. This is truly a win-win situation offering advanced courses to our students and providing professional development to our faculty.
Starting with the 2014-2015 school year we will be offering three classes with additional classes planned in the future. Course planned for 2014-2015:
Forensic Science (4 credits): This course is intended to provide an introduction to understanding the science behind crime detection. The course will emphasize the techniques used in evaluating physical evidence; laboratory exercises will include techniques commonly employed in forensic investigations.
College Learning Strategies (3 credits): This is the study and application of strategic approaches to learning. Strategies are presented and practiced in order for students to maximize their learning in the context of college lectures, readings, recitations, and independent learning situations.
Economic Ideas and Issues (3 credits): This course provides an introduction to modern economic thought, taking students from the microeconomic to the macroeconomic level.
Please contact the guidance office for additional information and questions.
