Directed Learning Activities & Chemistry Modules
Directed Learning Activities and Chemistry Modules provide supplemental support for students looking to gain additional understanding of key concepts through practice grounded in contextual learning. With support and guidance from English and Chemistry faculty, tutors in the LRC Tutoring Center now facilitate Directed Learning Activities and Chemistry Modules for students of all English and Chemistry levels.
