Unformatted text preview: whether the evidence presented supports the conclusions, and (3) your thoirghts on the content of the lecture. You cannot receive the full 10 points for any essay that does not do all three of these. As an alternative, you can write an essay on Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. If you choose this option, your essay must address the following questionfi' I) did Dr. Jones have a hypothesis, (2) if so, how did he test it, (3) did he use any archaeological methods or theories (for example, sampling techniques, Middle Range arguments, etc.) in his work or was he just treasure hunting? There is no definite answer to these questions (honest): we want to hear your perspective on them. Readings and Required Material The readings are an integral part of the class, and I will assume in lecture that you are keeping up with them: lectures will not simply repeat the material in the readings, although they will overlap with them. The exams will cover all of the material in the readings, whether it has been specifically covered in lecture or not. There is one required text for this class: The Past in Perspective (2007/4th ed.), by Kenneth Feder. The schedule for the readings is on the last page of this syllabus. PLEASE BE SURE THAT YOU HAVE THE CORRECT EDITION OF THIS BOOK: THE CONTENT AND PAGINATION HAVE CHANGED SINCE THE 3RD EDITION. Replacement Syllabi We recognize that papers, even papers given to you by your professors, sometimes get lost; we lose things, too (although we do not lose your exams or essays). However, in order to minimize unnecessary use of paper and wear and tear on the Anthropology Department xerox machine, we will only give you one copy of the class syllabus. If you lose your copy, you can find the syllabus on the Anthropology Department home page ~{’(lltquzfl ) and download or print it from there. Students with Disabilities If you have specific physical, psychiatric or learning disabilities and require accommodations, please let me know early in the semester so that we can meet your learning needs appropriately. You will need to provide documentation of your disability to the Disability Services office in Willard Hall, Room 322 (303-492—8671, ), and they will provide a letter to bring to us. Class Conflicts with Religious Holidays If any of the exams or recitation meetings conflict with your observance of a religious holiday, please let us know at least two weeks in advance of the date on which the conflict occurs so that we can make an accommodation. Observing a religious holiday constitutes an excused absence from recitation, but we still need to know in advance. Other Ofi'icial Issues The University has asked all faculty to remind all of our students that you are required to abide by the University policies regarding classroom and course-related behavior as well as by the Student Honor Code. If you are uncertain about what these polices are, check them on the university web site. The issues covered by these policies that are most important for this class are (l) cheating and (2) classroom disruption. Basically, you ...

    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.
