Skills of Interpretation
Point of View:
The General Plan For the Course
The course will be designed so that on a typical day students will be engaged in historical reasoning about crucial questions regarding major trends and patterns by using primary and secondary sources (interpreting the significance and meaning of that information).
They will work in groups on those questions but will write up individual papers. Once completed, their individual papers will be assessed by student groups which will make specific recommendations for improvement based on criteria focused on the variables that affect the quality of historical reasoning. Their final grade will be determined by the professor by grading 3 papers chosen at random from their portfolio.
