I have begun the process of adding the outlines for our class to the website. These can be found in the “Outline” section under HST110. The list will be added to as we proceed through the semester.

LSB327 – Both Sections

Participation Assignment #2 is due Thursday 9/13.

HST110 & HST111

Remember – your on-going homework is to read the chapters that correspond to what is covered in class. Even though it may seem redundant, I strongly urge you to reread each chapter several times. And, you have the option of completing the review questions at the end of every chapter we cover this term.

For HST110 – All “Reviewing the Objectives” questions are worth 1 point each. All “People, Ideas and Events in Context” questions are worth 1/2 point each. So, for example, you have opportunity to earn a maximum of 10.5 bonus points for Chapter 18 (5 pts for Review and 5.5 pts for PI&E), which is equal to 2.1 points added to your final average.

For HST111 – You are to answer “Review Questions”. Each response is worth 1 point. So, for example, Chapter 1 has 8 questions. For answering each question effectively, you can earn 8pts, which is equal to 1.6 points added to your final average.

All Classes

All lectures have been posted as of today – 9/10. Sorry for the delay.

HST114 – Genocide

As mentioned in class, your first homework questions are due on the date of the first quiz. These have been posted in the writing assignment section on the homework page. Quiz Date = TBA

For the class immediately following the quiz, you are read the essay by Rowben Adalian discussing the Armenian Genocide. A link can be found within the “required reading” section on the homework page.

LSB327 – Both Sections

As mentioned in class, participation assignment #1 is due next Thursday – Sept 6th. It should be handwritten and brought to class. NOTE: essentially you are to complete a partial brief (facts, issue, rule) from the .pdf, and the remaining portion – the court’s analysis – should come from you. If you base your decision firmly on the rule of law and explain your reasoning, there can be no “wrong” answer. I would suggest your revisit the full decision and the judge’s reason in Kuehn v. Pub Zone as a guide.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email me over the weekend.

Good luck!

Thanks for the enjoyable semester. As I said before handing out your exams, local government is the most important level within our federal system for you as an individual citizen. Stay informed and become active. It is where you can make a difference!
