Description: Students will be introduced to three key phases (preview/motivation, acquisition of knowledge, and extension of learning) necessary for in-depth comprehension of any type of textual information from both primary and/or secondary sources. By utilizing a hands-on case study of the Quechua rural villages of Andean Bolivia, students will experience these three phases, practicing effective research-based strategies and skills. Simultaneously, students will be given the opportunity to examine the interactions of humans who have positively modified their environments in order to satisfy their nutritional needs through somewhat unconventional means.
