It emphasizes the economic, political, intellectual and social maturing of the United States. This is a lot of information to cover, but it is very useful for understanding the world in which we live. As the course comes closer to the present, the potential for being overwhelmed increases. The textbook for this class is the best and briefest available on the subject, but there is still a lot of information for students to absorb. Be prepared to read, work, research, think, and take personal responsibility for doing all of these. Instructor: Prof. Margaret I. R.

together to get you through these required elements. To help insure students keep up with their reading, every student should keep a Reading Journal . This will consist of writing a 1/2 page summary and analysis of each chapter or reading assignment. You be asked to turn this in each class and will receive it back during the next class. So, make sure you have read the chapter and done the summary before class. Regardless of whatever notes you would like to keep for yourself, make sure you have this 1/2 page summary with you in class. If you do not have it, you will lose points. Every student must sign up for this course on Blackboard . All written work (except secretary notes and project drafts) must be submitted through the links under the “Assignments” Section of the course on Blackboard. Your first “Turnitin” Assignment ( to demonstrate an understanding of this process and how to avoid plagiarism) is to go to http://www.lib.usm.edu/legacy/plag/plagiarismtutorial.php and review the materials there. Once you have completed the Post-Test, email the results to yourself, and cut and paste the emailed results into a MS Word document. Then go to the Plagairism “Turnitin” Assignment on the course website on Blackboard and up-load your document.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
