LSB327

The “new” participation assignment #2 has been posted. It is another You Be the Judge. You are to hand-write this assignment and bring it in for discussion on Tuesday.

GO PATRIOTS!!!!!

HST112 & PSC221

On Tuesday January 30th, President Donald J. Trump will be giving his first State of the Union Address to the nation. Considering the importance of us all to be better informed citizens, I will offer ONLY TO THESE TWO CLASSES an opportunity to earn extra credit. Even though sections of LSB327, HST105, and HST232 are not eligible for extra credit, I would strongly suggest you tune in as well.

Those students eligible for extra credit and wish to complete this assignment will write a 1-2 page, single-spaced typed or written reflection paper. It will contain four things: you will discuss/describe/explain in your own words the President’s statements regarding 1) a single domestic policy achievement/goal, 2) a single foreign policy achievement/goal, 3) an explanation as to why you selected the two items you choose to discuss, and 4) a personal statement as to what your overall feeling was of the speech itself as a whole.

For PSC221, this assignment must be submitted on Thursday February 1st.
For HST112, this assignment must be submitted on Friday, February 2nd.

Successful completion of this opportunity will be FIVE extra credit points, which is the equivalent of ONE point added to your final average in May.

HST232

If you have not noticed yet, I have begun uploading extra reading assignments. Please do not feel obligated to read ahead. I will be referencing these in class. And, for some, I will put together extra-credit opportunities because there are relatively few review questions contained within the text.

All Classes

The recordings for the entire week have been uploaded. I would ask that those students who added-in fully review the lecture for the first class of the term as well as the syllabus. Even though you may not have been physically present, you will be held to the same expectations as your peers.

For those students who have been with your respective class since day one, I would ask that you continually review terms contained within syllabus. Come May, I would hate for any one of you to suffer from the stated consequences if the situation was easily avoidable.

LSB327 – Both Sections

Just as a reminder, Participation Assignment #1 located in the “homework” section is due Tuesday 1/30.

All classes

Recordings from the first week of classes have been uploaded.

Good luck this semester!
