Knowledge Integration and Tools for Success

This class develops students’ research abilities, media literacy, and self-management skills. Students explore learning outcomes focused on inquiry, technology, and personal development while they practice skills to succeed and pursue curiosity at Harvard-Westlake, college, and beyond. Through problem solving, critical thinking, and research into real-world topics, students learn how to self-manage, relate to others, and learn effectively; acquire, organize, and store information; evaluate legitimacy and usefulness of sources; practice ethical digital citizenship; and responsibly take part in the ongoing conversation that is research.
