Course Expectations

Below, you will find course expectations for the full course."

bulletComplete weekly readings on time.

As a graduate course in history, you will be expected to do a substantial amount of reading.  We have centuries to cover in one semester.  Students are expected to complete all “assigned” readings for each unit.  Readings marked “optional” are highly recommended but, of course, optional.

bulletParticipate in weekly on-line discussion.

Each week students and the professor will post comments and questions to an on-line “Discussion” forum.  This interactive forum is designed to allow students to communicate with one another and to ask questions of the professor.

bulletHave access to (and a working knowledge of) a computer that can browse and download files from the Web.

The primary learning tool for this course is your computer, its Internet browser, and the Internet.  Please make yourself familiar with these tools if you are not already.

bulletComplete and post written responses every week.

For each unit, you will be asked to write and post to the Web a one-page written response to a specific topic pertinent to that unit.

bulletComplete a final paper.

By the end of the semester, you will be expected to complete and mail to the professor a research paper of 10 to 15 pages.  Your research should include primary and secondary materials.  In addition, you will be asked to integrate your historical research with your ministry, or with contemporary issues in our movement.  In other words: how does our history speak to you today?
