Emphasis on colonial and early national periods through the Civil War and Reconstruction. Students must take 6 credit hours of HIST 1301, 1302, or 2301 to fulfill the Texas legislative requirement for history. Required textbook : , Vol. I, Special Texas Edition ISBN # 0-536-07128-4 How to contact me : via e-mail at dsb8402@dcccd.edu . As I will be on campus very infrequently, there is little point in contacting the Access Office and leaving a phone message, as it may be weeks before I actually read the message. Contact me via e-mail. I will try to answer all emails within 24 hours and usually much sooner than that! Just how does an online class operate; how do I get the information and learn the material? An excellent question, and hopefully the following points will answer it? First, I will provide you with chapter notes for each chapter of the text. The notes will be posted on the eCampus site for our course. You should read and work your way through each chapter, using my notes as your guide. At the end of each set of chapter notes you will find a list of the most important terms to know from that chapter. I will also post a review sheet to help you prepare for each test. TESTING: How are we tested and evaluated? Student evaluation will consist of four tests and two required Discussion Board topics. Each test has 100 points, and each of the four tests “stands on its own,” which is to say that there is no overlap on the material on which you are tested. The first test covers Chapters 1-4 of the course, the second test Chapters 5-8 and so forth. The fourth and last test covers only Chapters 13-16 of the course and is not, I repeat, is not a comprehensive final. The tests are made up of both multiple choice and true-false questions.
