You need to have the textbook in hand at the start of the course. however, if for some reason beyond your control, you do not have the textbook in the first few days of class, which you need to take every effort to avoid, there is still a work around. You can still read the first six chapters on-line. Go to Library web-site, click on services in menu on left hand side. Under services, choose ereserve. In ereserve set the first drop down box to "Instructor", set second drop down box to "contains", in the third box type "cooper". Choose HIST 1000c - you will need to enter a password which is "cooper".


Last Weeks of class

You have worked very hard and diligently over the semester and so I am inclined to try relieve the pressue of end of semester due dates - I have rearranged the syllabus to combine Chapters 22 and 23 and Chapters 24 and 25. You still have to read these chapters but the dates for posts due have changed to try to allow you guys to have a easier end of the semester and schedule your time-management. Note that you can work ahead on first posts for April 28th and May 5th over the Easter break - then you just have to remember to do the second posts by May 2nd and May 9th (and the final essay).

Apr 14 Watch Lecture 12. Read Getz Chapter 21, Respond to Discussion 21.(1st response 9AM, 2nd Midnight)

Apr 18  See April 28

Apr 28  Watch Lecture 13. Read Getz Chapter 22 and 23, Respond to Discussion Chapter 22 and 23 combined.(1st response any time before 9AM April 28th, anytime before May 2nd midnght)

May 2  See May 5

May 5  Watch Lecture 14 and Lecture 15, Read Getz Chapter 24 and 25, Respond to Discussion Chapter 24 and 25 combined.(1st response any time before May 5 9AM, 2nd any time before Midnight May 9)

May 9    Conclusions  ESSAY TWO IS DUE

I hope this is clear - I will count the grade April 28th and May 5th discussion twice, so you will not loose out in the math if you are doing much better at the end of the semester than at the beginning.

I hope this helps you to bring your semester to a successful ( and less insane) close.

Look at the tabs acroos the top of the page - gathered in the "Links" "You-Tube Videos" and "Radio Programs" is material that will enhance your learning experience. You can always bring in information from here into your posts:

Each week I will point you to a few recommendations - this week you might want to check out:

You-tube video: "Hernan Cortes: Hero or Villian?"

Radio Program: Aztecs

Links: Columbus and the Age of Discovery 1492=1992

and 1491 the on-going journey

Don't be put off by the idea of a radio program - this is a great series each week the interviewer Melvin Bragg brings together three leading experts to discuss a particular topic, you get a good background to the topic as well as hearing some of the issues that are debated among leading historians.

After reading all your comments about wikipedia on the first day I thought I would give a quick plug for the library - which is where you go for research guidance and a whole bunch of other stuff - did you know they have sessions on all kinds of things - finding research articles, avioding plagiarism etc. as well as one-one-one research help.
