HST232

Second Extra Credit Assignment from Mein Kampf Volume I, Chapter XI – Nation and Race

Worth = 10 extra-credit points

You are to complete a FULL 2-page (or more) analysis on how, according to Hitler, the Jews historically have worked their way into the civilization of others and, once inside, how to they effectively destroy it from within.

No shortcuts please! Watch your spacing and font size. I would really like to see a strong effort with this from all who chose to take advantage of this opportunity. Understanding Hitler’s methodology is the only way to answer the question “why”.

This, like the other extra-credit assignment, is due by exam day. And, you may submit it either by email or by hard-copy.

HST232

As mentioned this morning, I provided an extra-credit opportunity available to any student who earned a failing grade on the first exam. If you fall into this category, you may complete a 2-page reflection paper on Chapter 11 from Volume I of Mein Kampf – Nation and Race worth up to 20 points. These points will be added directly onto your exam grade. It is due Friday 3/16, which is when I have submit your mid-term averages to the college.

The focus of this assignment will be a discussion of Hitler’s view on race. In doing so, you must fully discuss the entirety of his position. It must be typed and I am expecting college-level work (re: grammatically clean). I shall grade it in a similar fashion as your research paper, except all possible point deductions are 1/5 of what is stated in the “Paper Grading” section of the website. The only exception is with citations. Because it is a reflection paper, you may quote (provided it is at a minimum) or paraphrase without including footnotes.

Any other student who wishes to do this assignment may do so. However, it will be worth 10 points and these points will be counted as extra-credit. To receive these points, this assignment must be submitted before exam #2.

HST105

After much consideration, I have decided how best to facilitate your mid-term. So far, we have effectively covered the material in Chapters 16-21. For your mid-term exam, you are to answer 20 of the “Review the Main Ideas” questions found at the end of each chapter. As there are approximately 30 questions, this means you may essentially pick and choose what you wish to answer. It is my expectation that you answer each question fully. When you complete your mid-term, please email it to me at jesse@proflimanek.com. This assignment is due by Monday March 19th at the latest.

HST232 & PSC221

Grade sheets for both HST232 & PSC221 have been updated.

For PSC221, the grade posted will be your mid-term grade.

For HST232, I will be offering two extra-credit assignments on Monday. With luck, we will be able to get them added to your average before the college needs me to submit mid-terms. I would ask that you also review the attendance policy within the syllabus section of this website. Currently there are some of you on the verge of incurring the attendance penalty for too many absences.

LSB327

Participate Assignment #5 is due tomorrow if classes are held. If not, it is due the Tuesday after Spring Break.

HST112 & LSB327

HST112 – All exams have been graded, and I’m pretty sure I also graded all of the extra credit work submitted thus far. The grade sheet for your class has been updated.

LSB327 – Grade sheets for both sections have been unlocked and updated. Unfortunately I had to submit your mid-term grades earlier than expected. All work was entered that was in my possession before I submitted mid-term grades to the college.

LSB327 – Both Sections

Participation Assignment #4 will be due on Thursday March 1st. You are to follow the model brief for this assignment. This means I should not see your opinion in the analysis – only the court’s reasoning. Also, in finding the rule of law used by the court in making its decision, remember the rule essentially answers the question asked in the issue.
