Section Description

PURPOSE OF THIS COURSE. The purpose of this course is to develop the student understanding of the geographic, religious, economic, social, political and cultural aspects of the World history since 1500. Students will develop the following higher order of the outcomes in this course: - a commitment to a life of self examination and reflection, by studying history, cultures, religion, social-economic and political development of different parts of the world thus, promoting this type of introspection; - a commitment to a life of integrity and professional ethics, by completing homework assignments individually without collaborating with other students unless specifically instructed to do so by professor; - a commitment to lifelong reading, by reading about life of different peoples, their cultures, languages and remembering that this is the way to succeed at the age of globalization; - an ability, in limits of the issues of the course, to apply key concepts from the study of history - such as time, chronology, causality, change, complexity, continuity; to explain, analyze, and show connections among patterns of historical change and continuity, the ways cultures and countries address human needs and concerns, develop different forms of institutions, belief and ideological systems, maintain order and security; - an understanding and ability to show how data, values and experiences may be differently interpreted by people from diverse cultural realities, as well as interactions of language, historical experiences, beliefs, economic realities and patterns of human behavior; - a commitment and ability in relation to the course content issues to employ processes of critical historical inquiry to reconstruct and reinterpret the past, such as using a variety of sources and checking their credibility, validating and weighing evidence for claims, and searching for causality; - a commitment and ability to investigate, analyze and interpret multiple historical and contemporary viewpoints within and across cultures, ideologies related to important issues of the content of the course, while employing empathy, skepticism, and critical judgement.

Section Expectation

B. EACH WEEK YOU WILL HAVE - two chapters to read; - - to work on assignments for each chapter and email your answers to me; [Note: This might sound like a lot of work. But remember that there are ZERO lectures and discussions in the classroom ... and so this work is to be done in lieu of traveling to and from the college, parking, going to class, attending lectures and discussions, and so forth. When you add it all up, you will end up spending LESS TIME than you normally do for an in-the-classroom course.] - Each chapter assignment will be graded on a 6-point scale, making in total 60 points in your final grade, and will be composed of multiple choice and short essay questions that focus on the readings and course materials. Assignments are open book; however you will also have a limited amount of time in which to complete each assignment. The purpose of the assignments is to check that you have read and understood the course materials, and will test not just your retention of factual information from the readings, but your understanding of it. - one Discussion Board question for each chapter to which you must respond with a "major post" (3-4 paragraphs or so). - the requirement to respond to "at least" two comments by other students to Discussion Board question for each chapter. Each week entry to the Discussion Board (?major post? and two comments to major posts of other students) will be graded on a 2-point scale, making it in total 20 points in your final grade.
