Have all assignments COMPLETED BY the date given. We will discuss the chapters you’ve read and assignments you’ve completed on the class date shown. This does mean that you have an assignment due on the first date of class. Do not get behind on assignments. It will be very difficult for you to catch up with the class. You may work ahead if you choose.
This course involves a huge amount of research outside of the student texts. You are REQUIRED to complete an assigned research project during this course, due on April 24, 2017. This will require an essay AND a brief presentation of your findings in class. It will also require that you develop a chart or graph to be presented in class. I recommend either a large poster board or tri-board for this. This will be hard and you will hate it, but you’ll thank me for it later. I also know it is a stretch for some of you, but pushing yourself to try a new thing and getting out of your comfort zone for 3-5 minutes is a good thing for all of us. This is a chance for you to prove yourself. I know you can do it!
This course also requires a huge amount of reading. If you don’t complete it, you’ll be sorry. A study in economic history will be very enlightening as you reflect on what you’ve learned in your studies of world and American history. There is nothing I can say in class that will replace what you can learn in the reading assignments.
