Welcome to History 111!
The class will involve lectures, readings, and discussions which address the major issues in American history from the 15th century to Reconstruction. Among the topics to be discussed are colonization, the Revolutionary War, the U.S. Constitution, and the causes and results of the Civil War.
What to Expect in this Course
All of our coursework and discussions will be done in Canvas; we won't have class meetings. Our coursework will take the form of films, readings, discussion forums, one book review, and tests, that you'll send me through turnitin.com and Canvas. Your first discussion forum post is due the first Tuesday of class! Please start browsing relevant books you might review. I must approve them, but you should choose a non-fiction book that's around 300 pages long, and immediately relevant to our class.
