Assignment Calendar

Important Dates for Class Assignments, Fall 2016

(important dates for you to remember but not the full assignments for the semester)

For every discussion section meeting with your TA, you are asked to submit a short written response (1 or 2 paragraphs) about the assigned readings for the week and pose several questions (which might be used for class discussion). This must be turned into your TA each week. Attendance at the sections is required.  In addition, at each Friday sections, your TA will pose one historical question; together, you will discuss the evidence that can be used to answer the question.  This way, you will develop good skills in using multiple sources as evidence for historical interpretations.

The Monday before sections, we will be emailing you the reading assignments for that Friday’s discussion. I have set up the readings until the first mid-term.
