To access the web pages for some of the readings, you can try going directly to the addresses I’ve supplied below. If that doesn’t work, go to the Fordham University Library page; click on databases and indexes; scroll down to ‘medieval studies’; scroll down to halsall/sbook.htm; that’s the Internet Medieval Sourcebook. Written Assignment and Exams: Occasional short essays will be due throughout the semester and those will be announced in the classes before the times they are due. These contribute to your class participation grade. A 5-8 page paper will be due at the end of the semester, details for which will be forthcoming. In addition to these written assignments, there will be a midterm and a final. Attendance : Your final grade will be lowered if you miss more than three classes for whatever reason. In keeping with University policy, more than six absences will result in a final grade of AF (failure for excessive absence). Also, please be aware that there are no make-up tests. If you skip or miss one then you’ll receive an F for that particular one. Grading : Class Participation: 25% End of Term Paper: 20% Midterm: 25% Final: 30%.

    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.
