Note: Everything above may be revised as needed.
5/24: Please note that a question has been taken off the study guide. It is marked in red.
The Chapter 10 Quiz will open at the usual time, Sunday morning.
Have an enjoyable, safe, and restful 3-day weekend!
The Chapter 9 and Chapter 11 Quizzes are available.
Note that we skip Chapter 10 this week (we'll come back to it next week).
The Chapter 9 Assignment is a group assignment; groups will be made (by me) in class on Monday, so it is important to attend class tomorrow (well, more important than usual).
5/13: The Chapter 7 and Chapter 8 Quizzes are available in Moodle.
5/10: The Chapter 7 Assignment is posted above. It is optional for extra credit, due next Friday.
5/8: The Study Guide for Exam 2 is posted above.
5/6: The Chapter 6 Quiz is available in Moodle. There is no assignment this week, and only one chapter, so use this week to catch your breath and get caught up on whatever you need to get caught up on.
To clarify: Exam 1 is Monday. Every question on the
exam is on the Study Guide--but obviously every question on the Study Guide is
not on the exam. I reserve the right to re-word a question, or perhaps combine
questions, but only in a way that would make it easier (for example, a question
that currently says "Describe...." might be re-worded to read "List...."). So if
you can answer the questions on the Study Guide, you will be able to answer
anything thrown at you on the exam. The exam covers Chapters 1-5, even though
Chapter 5 was barely mentioned in class.
No exam books required--all you need to bring is something to write with. If you want the maximum time available, come to class a few minutes early, and you can stay a few minutes late, but remember there are classes in our room both before and after us.
The extra credit "Student Handout 1" is due at the beginning of class on Monday. It should help you answer the last question on the Study Guide. There are extra handouts in the plastic folder outside my office. It is worth up to 15 points.
5/2: Exam 1 is postponed until Monday, May 6. The due date for the Chapter 4 Assignment has NOT changed.
4/30: The Chapter 4 and Chapter 5 Quizzes are available in Moodle. Remember that there are two chapters this week, and thus two quizzes.
Class was canceled yesterday, Monday, April 29.
4/26: The Chapter 4 Assignment is posted above.
4/23: A funny satirical article about our lack of knowledge about the rest of the world: http://www.theonion.com/articles/study-majority-of-americans-not-informed-enough-to,32124/
The Religious Knowledge Quiz mentioned in class. 15 questions, less than 2 minutes. See how you do: http://features.pewforum.org/quiz/us-religious-knowledge/
4/22: Happy Earth Day. The Chapter 3 Quiz is available in Moodle.
4/18: The Study guide for Exam 1 is posted above, as is the Chapter 3 Assignment (due next Friday).
4/15: Class is canceled tomorrow, Tuesday, April 16.
The Chapter 2 Quiz is available in Moodle.
4/12: Don't forget the Chapter 1 Quiz closes tomorrow, Saturday night, at 11:55 PM. And the Chapter 1 Assignment is due at the beginning of class on Monday. Have a good weekend.
Class was canceled the last two days, Wednesday and Thursday. I apologize for any inconvenience.
4/9: Just a reminder that in the event of a class cancelation, anything due that day would be due at the next class meeting. No need to email it to me.
The Chapter 1 Assignment is posted above. It is due at the beginning of class on Monday, April 15. This is a change!
This is where you will find announcements related to class. Such as:
We will be using both
website and Moodle this quarter. The course website is where you will
find the syllabus, schedule, and other course information; the assignments;
study guides; and information on how to get started in Moodle.
Moodle is where you will find chapter quizzes and your grades.
