Readings and response papers are due on Mondays, which will primarily focus on reading comprehension and interpretation of events and narratives. Wednesdays will often be used to more carefully analyze primary documents, scholarly arguments, or larger historical themes through in-class discussions and activities. Fridays will be reserved for activities that call for practice and application of skills and ideas discussed earlier in the week. Some Friday class meetings have been canceled in lieu of independent, out-of-class work necessary for course activities and projects.
Readings from the booklist are listed with the author’s last name in bold. All other readings will be posted to the Moodle site at least one week in advance.
