Historical Analysis Prep

Studies suggest that interteaching – in our case, student completion of short, targeted historical analysis assignments before seminar, coupled with shorter, student-tailored lectures – can help students focus their attention and better prepare for class discussions.  They give me a sense of what you do and don’t understand from the day’s reading.  In addition, they let us devote more time in class to active learning.  As you read each day’s materials, please complete the corresponding Historical Analysis Prep and bring it to class.  These will form the basis of our active discussions.  I’ll randomly check one third of the class’ work every session, grading for completion and effort.  On other days, I’ll collect the sheets from the entire class to give more detailed feedback on your historical analysis.
