Instructions for class on May 7.

Class will begin at 12, instead of 11.  The following assignment will be due at 12, in addition to the regular homework (see syllabus).

Go the video section of the Eyes on the Prize website on pbs.org:


Select three videos to watch.  On the “in-class writing” section of your ePortfolio, write a 2-3 paragraph reflection on the videos.  Explain why you selected them and what they let you know about the Civil Rights movement and how it changed.  Feel free to connect the videos to things we have discussed in class, things you are learning about or have learned in other classes, and current events.



The first quiz will be March 7, during the first 20 minutes of class.


The due date for the comments on your classmates' ePortfolios has been moved to March 5, as, due to technical difficulties, I couldn't demonstrate the commenting process in class last week.


On Jan. 31 we will meet in the computer lab in Meister 225.  Go directly to the lab, instead of our regular classroom.


Welcome to the American Nation (His 20). This course is a one-semester survey of the history of the United States covering significant political, social, and cultural currents of the last 400 years. This class will introduce students to the major developments in United States history, with a focus on individual and collective action. Students will analyze how these developments helped shape American society and the United States’ role in the global community.
