Did you know that there are different styles of teaching and different classroom norms depending on where you go to school?

In this session, we’ll talk about some of the unique features of U.S. universities and how you might prepare for the academic climate here. [Note: this session is open to all incoming first years, but it’s designed for international students.] Here are some sample questions you or your peers might ask:

What is a U.S. classroom like? How might the expectations be different?
I feel fine speaking English, but I’m worried about my writing. Will there be any resources for me?
I’m worried about getting enough practice speaking English. Are there ways I can make sure I’m getting the exposure I need?
Will U.S. students have an advantage over me culturally and academically?
I was in an IB program for high school. Will that have prepared me well for Harvard?

This workshop will be presented twice - at 9am and at 12pm ET, and each session has a unique Zoom link.
