Hi, I am Megan, your teacher for this course. Welcome to American History.
This is a one credit course. You may also complete first or second semester half-credits in this course. You may submit one lesson per day. Do not move more than two lessons ahead before a lesson is graded (so you should only be working on two lessons at any time). This will help to make sure that you do not have many revisions left to do at the end of the course.
There are several different types of lessons in this course:
The multiple choice lessons have a strict grading rubric. You will need to refer to the readings in order to answer the multiple choice questions (this is to help ensure you have carefully read the material). The answer is always to be found within the reading, even if you disagree with the answer in the reading. If you miss three or fewer questions the lesson will be graded automatically. If you miss more than three, you need to submit revisions and explanations for your answers, which will then be responded to by the instructor. Careful attention on the first submission will save you from needing to revise your work.
Other lessons have textual submissions, where you will either be expected to answer questions about cartoons or articles, or where you will be asked to formulate letters, essays, or research papers. These lessons are graded by your instructor, and you will need to revise until the instructor tells you the lesson is complete. The final lesson in this course is a larger project, which may also take the form of a research paper (among other options). Be certain to use your own words, and to cite your sources on these lessons.
If you need help, ask for help. Be specific with your questions and what you don't understand. I will try a little harder to explain myself. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me using the form at the bottom of the page.
