A sampling of WWI posters from around the world. There’s a link at the bottom for a grand archive of more of these artistic graphic designs.
Hope everyone weathered the storm safely!
Obviously, a revised course schedule is now in place. I decided that we really needed the review day before this next test, so I used the review days for tests 4 and 5, and pushed everything back two days. This means that I’ll be lecturing Friday, then you’ll have a review session Monday before the test on Wednesday. This also means that the 3rd test, originally scheduled for the day before Spring Break, is now the Wednesday after break. Homework and Essay assignments have been adjusted accordingly. Also note that the Essay assignments are now available, so you can begin thinking about this as you work through the books.
Also note, if you are working from an older printed copy, that I’ve trimmed the list of terms for the 2nd test, to make things a little bit more focused.
While I’m grading Test #1, you can begin working on the reading for the next few chapters. I’ve updated the study guide with terms through the next test. As you can see from the terms (and the schedule), these chapters aren’t quite as balanced as the first set.
All textbooks, not just the one for this class! An excellent overview of the problems historians have with textbooks, and students should, too. Very similar to some of what I was saying Wednesday, and why I take a different perspective than the textbook on many topics.
The remaining workshop in the Academic Success Workshop Series will focus on Test Prep and Preparing for Finals.

As promised, despite some technical difficulties, I did get the lecture for Wednesday – Reformation – recorded in Tegrity and it is now available for viewing through Angel. I’m not going to repeat this material, but I am going to test on it, just like any other lecture.
