My educational philosophy is to treat students as adult learners, exchanging views, opinions, thoughts, ideas, and real world experiences relating to history. Readings and examinations contribute to the learning process, however, participation in this class is very important. I do not believe in doing "busy work" which does not contribute to learning. There will be total academic freedom in my classroom.
Mid term examination 35 points Grading plan: 100-90=A
Final examination 35 points 89-80=B
Oral presentation 25 points 79-70=C
Class participation 5 points 69-70=D
Grading: See above.
Late Submission of Course Materials:
All assignments must be completed on time. Late assignments will only be accepted if approved by me in advance.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Please be on time and remain for the entire class. Any unexcused absence (one that I have not approved in advance) will result in a one grade reduction in your final grade. Please turn off all cell phones and beepers. Do not look at your text messages during class. You may do this during class breaks. No talking when I am speaking or when another student is speaking. There will be total academic freedom in my classroom. Please complete the on line survey after completion of the course.

There is no requirement for a paper for this course. It will be much more demanding for you to do an oral presentation. The examinations will be completed in class. The oral presentations will be no more than 10 minutes. You may use your notes (which do not have to be turned in) but DO NOT read your report. Topics must be approved by me in advance. If you fail to do the oral presentation, you will lose 25 points.
