|Have 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.
|Complete 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.
|Complete 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?
