History of the United States (KAJ/DUS)

Christopher Koy, PhD ( )
Office Hrs: 13-14 Tuesdays & Wednesdays



Students will make one four to five minute (in-class) presentation and four page formal paper, selecting a historical figure from a list passed out in class as the topic for both tasks. At the end of the semester there will be a written examination, and if the student elects to do so [to change the grade result], an oral examination. The written and oral examination will be based on the topics on the worksheet "Places Events and People You Need to Know" based on lectures given throughout the semester as well as the text An Illustrated History of the USA.
