Hey 112ers, I have finally put up the materials for the Cold War. You can find the relevant links to the lecturecast, outline, and PowerPoint slides on the Lectures/Resources page, as usual. In terms of how we’ll handle it this week, the quiz over the lecturecast will take place on Thursday (April 14). For class on Tuesday (April 12), please make sure you have read the relevant selection from the Guarneri text.

Hey 112ers, I have posted materials related to the Second World War lecturecasts (the first part materials mostly). You can also find the link to the Part 1 lecturecast as well (it might still be uploading, but that’s the correct link). It’s all on the Lectures/Resources page as usual.
4/2 UPDATE: The link to Part Two of the lecturecast is live.
Hey 112ers, this is just a quick notice that I posted a bunch of your stuff for this week late last night (outlines, lecturecast, PowerPoint Slides, etc. You can find it all on the Lectures/Resources page, as usual. Please also note that I have decided to move the due date for your second Critical Response Essay (over Fussell’s The Boys’ Crusade) to Thursday, March 31, 2011 (which is also when we’ll discuss the book in class).
I have posted the PowerPoint slides for the lecturecast on US involvement in the First World War. I have also posted the first link to the video lecturecast. This week, I have broken the lecturecast into three short parts, each geared toward a specific question, for ease of transmission and listening. Part 1 is up now, part 2 is uploading as I type, and part 3 will be queued for upload shortly after. Check the Lectures/Resources page to find this material. We will have the quiz over this lecturecast at the beginning of class on Thursday, 24 February 2011. For Tuesday, 22 February, be sure you have done the assigned reading. Ping me if you have questions.
Late Afternoon Update: All three parts have been uploaded, converted, and linked. You are good to go.
I’m going to be altering our schedule for the next couple of weeks in class to better balance out the various issues we will be exploring (Progressivism, World War One, etc).
First, for Tuesday, 8 Feb, pleased be prepared to discuss the relevant chapter from Guarneri dealing with US Imperialism. We will also talk a little about the lecturecast I put up on Friday, as well as have a quiz over the material.
Second, next Thursday, 10 Feb, we will start our discussion of the Progressive Era, focusing on the lecturecast that is going live tonight and the relevant chapter from Guarneri. Yes, we will have a quiz over the Progressive Era lecturecast on Thursday.
Lastly, I will be extending the due date for the Critical Response Essay for Scott Martelle’s Blood Passion. It will no longer be due on 10 Feb; instead it will be due the following Tuesday, 15 Feb.
As usual, links for the lecturecasts can be found on the Lectures/Resources page. Ping me if you have questions.
My apologies, 112′ers. Due to a variety of circumstances, I wasn’t able to finish and upload the lecturecast for this week on US Imperialism. So here’s what will happen. The lecturecast will go up Tuesday morning. In class Tuesday afternoon we will open our discussion on imperialism by looking at the assigned Guarneri chapter and another activity I was planning for class. Thursday we will have the quiz and then break for PowerPoint work. If you have any questions for me, just let me know.
A quick heads up, CMU peeps. I have posted the PWPT slides and the lecturecast (in 2 parts…watch both) for our continued look at US Industrialization this week. Because it has taken me a bit to get this posted, I will not be holding a quiz over the material on Tuesday. Instead, I will administer the quiz on Thursday at the beginning of class before we then break for the Presentation Research Day. I will explain this further on Tuesday if you have any questions before we start engaging in the two reading selections.
In a fit of productivity, I have finished and posted your Midterm Exam Study Guide. It is located on your course syllabus page under Classes in the navigation bar above or you can click here. If you have questions, you know where to find me.
