Abstract: As one of the options in 2013 for the Senior Honors Project, co-teaching offers students a glimpse into the life of a professor. Students who choose this project are to choose a mentor and a class with which to assist. For this project, I, Katherine Ferri, chose to assist with Dr. Felts' Health 3010 class. I had taken this class a little over a year prior to the start of the project. The goal of the project was to learn new and different methods of teaching students information for the course. The first semester of the project mainly consisted of observing Dr. Felts' teaching style and methods, as well as creating an average of three extra credit quizzes per week. The extra credit quizzes covered material that was covered in class that day as well as material from assigned readings and Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Reports. The second semester was more involved and included me creating study guides to accompany self-study lectures, recording half a dozen lectures, and lecturing a class. During the second semester, I used a lot of the teaching methods that I found to be helpful during Dr. Felts' lectures. At the end of the semester, students were surveyed to determine how they feel about certain teaching methods and what they prefer. They were also asked about their feelings on how helpful the study guides were and the graphs and charts in the online lectures. Overall, the students responded positively to the teaching styles I also found to be helpful and to the self-study guides that were created.
