MAKING OF THE MODERN WORLD VI SPRING QUARTER 2010 Prof. Edmond Chang or 534-4935 MMW Office, #211 Office Hours: Wed 3-5 pm THE TWENTIETH CENTURY AND BEYOND: INTEGRATION AND DISINTEGRATION IN A GLOBAL SYSTEM Required Course Texts: Jeremy Bentley, et al., The Heritage of World Civilizations, vol 2 , seventh edition. Samuel Beckett, Waiting for Godot ; Erich Fromm, The Art of Loving ; Elie Wiesel, Night Heidi Keller-Lapp, MMW4-6: Writing and Research Workbook (also available online) Course Reader (University Readers) Order by phone: 800-200-3908 or order online: All books are available for purchase at the UCSD bookstore. A copy of the Course Reader will be held on reserve at the library. Course Requirements: Two midterm examinations (20 %) Final examination (35 %) Writing Assignments (35 % combined) Section attendance and participation (10 %) To pass the course, you must satisfy all course requirements; i.e., you must take all exams, turn in all writing assignments to section instructor and , and attend all section discussions. You are expected to complete assigned readings for the day of lecture; furthermore, you need to be prepared in section to discuss issues related to the week‟s readings and lectures. Examinations: There will be two midterm exams in this course. They will be designed to gauge your grasp of the readings and lectures. Each will consist of a variety of objective questions, so if you attend lectures consistently, read and reflect on the reading material, you can expect to do quite well on these assessments. The final exam will include an essay section cumulative in scope, along with objective questions. (Make-up exams will only be granted with a valid, documented reason for absence. They may include different content and be given in a different form, e.g. as an oral exam.) Reading Assignments: The true gem of any MMW course, I believe, is in the readings that instructors assign. Not only will you get more out of the lectures and discussions if you complete the readings by the dates indicated, but you will also assure yourself of a more meaningful and personal engagement with the diverse human experiences covered in the course. Thus, it is pivotal that you complete all reading assignments in a timely manner.
