Want to know more about what is going on with Syria and Iraq, and connect it to our studies this week? Watch this space for a library resource page, and meanwhile this map set with short explanations gives you a good start--without the history, you can't understand the current situation, so have at it!



homework this week due

I will accept late homework up to a week after the due date; if you have extenuating circumstances, let's talk.

Attention all procrastinators and time-management-challenged students! Here are some resources for you!

Don't miss class! My History 2 classes are in SS 210, MW at 12:50 and TTh at 2:30. So you can come to the OTHER class if you miss yours, and if not see me ASAP when you return to school to go over what you missed and clarify homework expectations. We do a lot every day you're gone, so get the notes from a new or used friend?

Please note that I put next week's HW on this page on Weds. so if you are in the TTh class, or running late, you may need to look at last week's--note DATES!

Due Oct. 1-2

Progressivism and your corporation paper.

1. YOUR PAPER. Corporation rought draft due with at least fifteen quotes from at least two sources. Late work will eat away at your final grade day by day, so be on time on Weds./Thursday. Rough draft clinics: Monday Sept. 29 and Monday Oct. 6 at 2:30 p.m., Tuesday Sept. 30 and Oct. 7 at 12:50, Weds. Oct. 1 at 2:30, and Thursday October 9 at 12:50 .Focus on finding corporation history and two well-documented externalities that relate to it. Buy some notecards as suggested in video below, and start collecting info! My research page should help and I can help on my office hours; the reference librarians are also standing by waiting for you.

2. RESEARCH PAPER VIDEOS. Do outlines of the videos.

If you need resources on doing an outline, here are a few (even if one is about books, it can apply to watching vidoes!) Remember that I'm asking for three levels of detail on the Research Without Fears outlines.

3. Optional extra credit SHORT READINGS on CITIZENS UNITED, ALEC, AND DEMOCRACY We will discuss Monday-Tuesday in lecture, but readings will help with concept check if you can fit them in. Start with .http://reclaimdemocracy.org/who-are-citizens-united/, then read about ALEC on its website http://www.alec.org/about-alec/ (check out Initiatives section)and on the website of its main opponents http://www.alecexposed.org/wiki/What_is_ALEC%3F No need to do quotes from this as you are doing them for your actual paper, but study the study questions and prepare that way for the concept check
