August 12 – August 18: Introduction and Orientation
Welcome to the first lesson. This week, we’ll get you all set to do well in the course and introduce yourself to us in the forum.

Introduction-hello.jpeg

Before we can get going, we have a few preliminary steps that must be taken. The first will be to follow the instructions and create an account on the class forum, called Discourse. Be sure to follow the directions closely, so you can learn to use the forum correctly. In order to take the quizzes and tests, you will need a Google account, which you likely already have. Both of these accounts are necessary to complete the lessons in this class. Once you set up your account on the forum, click the “Respond” button below to introduce yourself.

In the box below are the instructions for completing the lesson. Click “Expand” on the right to view them. These will appear at the top of all subsequent lessons for your convenience. Once you have read through them, you should complete the lesson.

Lesson Instructions and Explanation

Generally to avoid confusion, I have tried to make all lessons work the same way. Each lesson will have its weekly section presented in a chart. Work your way from left to right. Open links in tabs, so you don’t lose track of this page.

Due

This is the date this sections’s work is due. Complete everything in the row before 11:59:59 pm on this date.

Read

These are the readings for this section. Read them carefully, taking notes as you do. I recommend reading from a book or on paper, as you can highlight an annotate as you progress. This will help you in the next sections.

Do

This section will usually be a reading quiz on what you just read, so be sure to take it while the reading is fresh in your mind. However, it may also include other assignments or activities that must be accomplished.

Write

Most writing will be on the class forum. This section will contain instructions and guidance for completing your writing. Often, this will link to a series of discussion prompts for the text you’re reading. Choose one prompt, or thread, to answer, or create your own post (especially if there are none there you can or want to respond to) by clicking + New Topic. I’m looking for your engagement here, so aim for a single longish post and a shorter response to someone else’s post. Using secondary sources correctly for support will always earn you more points. Be sure you’re following the conventions outlined in Writing in the Liberal Arts and the guidelines in Academic Forum Posts.

Test

The test will be the last activity. It will test your knowledge of the entire lesson’s materials. Take this only after you have accomplished everything else in the lesson. The idea here is that you show me what you learned about the all of the lesson’s material. Please write in complete sentences and give enough detail to answer the questions. Your answers should convince me that you have learned and thought about the materials.

Once again, in case it’s not obvious by now, this class does not use D2L. Everything you need is on this site or linked off of it. If you are ever unsure of what you’re supposed to do, always come back to this site and refer to your syllabus.



Note

  1. The quiz at the end of this page is the same as the one linked here to the right.
