Materials and Homework

Course materials: There is no text to purchase. Students will be directed to assigned readings available on the internet.

Homework: There will be weekly objective quizzes based on the material presented during the weekly talks. In addition, students will submit two pieces of writing, each in the 500-word range, based on the readings and documents that will be available online. These readings and documents will all be relatively brief. The expectation would be that students should plan on devoting roughly one-and-a-half to two hours a week to this reading and up to three hours per week for the two weeks when a paper will be due.

Whether schooling one or many, Unlimited Access is the affordable way to have choices and give your students courses that fit exactly what you need.
