Welcome to honors in action
Honors in Action is a method that allows students to apply what they’ve learned and practice problem-solving in a real-world setting by creating an in-depth, action-oriented project based on their Honors Study Topic research. The distinction between Honors in Action and simply action is academic research into themes related to the Honors Study Subject. Honors in Action is deliberate action that has a long-term effect and contributes to societal improvement. Students build and demonstrate: This year’s committee will be divided into various fields of specialization, including Research, Strategists, Outreach, and Innovators, by participation in Honors in Action. Some fields overlap by default, but they are still needed for the project’s effective completion.
To better understand and work with emotions that emerge, Beta Iota Kappa suggests instituting evidence-based Social and Emotional learning for the next generation. Please take a look at our blog post, which also happens to be our project submission.
Addiction: you’re not alone
Theta Xi Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa at East Central Community College in Decatur held its second annual prom for special needs students, “Fairy Tale Ball,” on Friday, Nov. 3, 2017, at Pierce Castle on Chapel Hill Road in Newton County.
Every year, Phi Theta Kappa challenges local chapters to complete a “Honors In Action” project, with a variety of themes to choose from. Theta Xi’s theme was “Myth vs. Reality,” and advisors came up with the concept because they saw how other people perceive those with special needs as different, which is a myth, while working at the college. They wanted to do something to make them feel special, and they thought a prom would be fun.
Members of Theta Xi collect funds for the prom through a variety of fundraisers as well as sponsorships from local companies. Prom dresses have also been donated by students and members of the group.
Honors in action – leadership
Members will apply their learning and conduct real-world problem-solving by creating an in-depth, action-oriented project relevant to the research of an Honors Study Topic by engaging in a chapter’s Honors in Action Project.
What distinguishes Phi Theta Kappa’s honors program from others is academic analysis into themes related to the Honors Study Topic. This is what distinguishes Honors in Action from simply action. Honors in Action is research-based action that has a long-term effect and leads to the betterment of society.

When people learn that we need to take care of water, they dismiss it because it is a resource that has been provided to us, and we all know that water makes up 70% of the earth. However, just 3% of this 70 percent is freshwater. Furthermore, two-thirds of it is encased in glaciers. Humans need freshwater to live, but we only have access to about 1% of the water on the planet. Nearly 2.1 billion people worldwide do not have access to clean drinking water in their homes, and nearly 4.4 billion do not have access to adequate sanitation, placing them at risk of disease. Every day, 4,000 children die as a result of contaminated water. Over the past decade, the number of deaths has decreased dramatically, from 1.2 million in 2000 to about 760,000 in 2011. “What do we waste the most water on?” you may wonder. ELECTRICITY is the solution. We drink the majority of our water by energy, believe it or not. According to the Environmental Protection Agency of the United States: 25 gallons of water = 1 kWh of thermoelectric generation As a result, 40 watts equals 1 gallon of water. Different light bulbs, for example, burn different quantities of water: In comparison to 60 watts per hour, watts per light bulb: 60 watts = 1.5 gallon of water per hour 12 watts of CFL = 0.35 gallon of water per hour 8 watts = 0.2 gallon of water per hour
