Welcome! History is a discipline of study which
requires reading and thought, at times beyond what you have experienced
before. Exposure to events in history may challenge you to grow beyond
preconceived ideas and notions.
In order to ensure your exposure to the important concepts
and events throughout this course, I will post a weekly unit of lecture
notes to supplement the material you will read in the textbook.
I will post a discussion question on the Blackboard
which all students should respond to by the deadline.You will be able to
read what others have said and add to, agree with, or disagree with what
has been said. Please support your ideas with examples and well thought
out points. Courtesy and respect rule our conduct.
History terms are an important tool for understanding
the events of history. When you research these terms, look not just for
the definition, but also the historical context and significance in how
they relate to other events in history.
Exams will be taken from the textbook material,
lecture notes, history terms, and the discussion questions on the Blackboard.
I you should be experiencing any technical difficulties,
please request for help from the TCC Helpdesk at 822-2457.
