CHW 3M 2012: Day 1

This course will introduce you to several important cultures and eras that predate the 16th century. We will examine each of these cultures using the same basic criteria, but our focus will vary slightly from culture to culture. Here is a quick overview of the units this semester, along with the major assignments for each unit:

  1. A short introduction to the past: poster
  2. Ancient Egypt: (We need a new assignment…any ideas? Let’s talk about last year’s video game project)
  3. Ancient Greece: The Olympiad/Test
  4. Ancient Rome: Test
  5. Independent Study: A Presentation
  6. The Age of Faith: An In-Class Essay
  7. Class Choice  (Vikings, Ancient China, Ancient Japan, etc): No Assignment
  8. Culminating Activity (essay that can be based on Independent Study Unit)

What we need to do today

  • We need to discuss the importance of effective collaboration
  • We need to decide on our Class Choice unit
  • We need to find out what kind of technology we have at our disposal.
