The Disability Resource Center is looking for an interested and committed Honors Student to work with a student who is blind in his Fall 2015 ECON 121: Principles of Macroeconomics course. The Honors Student would serve as the DRC student’s note taker and scribe throughout the fall semester. A scribe assists with the visual and writing aspects of homework, in-class activities, and exams. The DRC student will be responsible for training the scribe and informing what tasks are needed such as describing graphs, or writing down specific answers.
The responsibilities for this activity are as follows:
- Attend all classes as the student’s note taker and scribe for any in-class work that needs completion.
o Class meets Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30-10:45 and Wednesdays from 1:00-1:50
- Meet with the student a couple of hours/week outside of class to help explain any notes and/or scribe homework assignments
- Scribe course exams with student throughout semester (2 midterms at 2.5 hours each and 1 final exam at 4 hours)
The requirements for this activity are as follows:
- Eligibility in the Honors College and approval of this activity by your Faculty Fellow
- Familiarity with Macroeconomics – prefer someone who has taken ECON 121 before, especially with Professor William Rauscher
o If you haven’t taken ECON 121 but will be in the future (including Fall 2015), you are not eligible for this activity.
