You need to plan on following the progress of the discussion threads at least three times each week so that you can participate in ongoing discussions.

4 Columbia College Online Campus P a g e 4 Your discussion posts are due by night at midnight. Discussions postings should include either a concise summary of information from the textbook or an analysis of the topic under study. Please do not use long quotations. I will be especially impressed with postings that use materials and resources found on the textbook's website or other reliable sources. If you do use any source other that the textbook, please note within the text of your discussion posting where you got the information. Each response to your classmates should add to the discussion in a meaningful way by bringing up an original and relevant point. It is not your job to tell other students that they have not addressed parts of the discussion topics, although you are encouraged to express a different interpretation or ask for additional information from other students on particular topics. Essays: You will write three essays in this course, due in Weeks 3, 5, and 7. All essays are responses to questions based on your reading of primary source documents, but will require that you understand the background material presented in the required textbook. These questions are found in the class dropbox in Desire 2 Learn. The essays are worth 100 points each and must be between 300 and 500 words in length, double-spaced, and submitted to the dropbox in either MS Word or Rich Text Format. In responding to the questions in the discussions and on the essay, you may want to use resources in addition to your textbook. This is encouraged, as it allows you to explore areas of interest in more detail. I do caution you, however, to be aware of any biases that some authors might have in dealing with the subject matter. Remember that Wikipedia is not an acceptable resource, as it is not refereed, and therefore not reliable. I recommend the sources found in the databases available through the Columbia College library. Be sure to document your sources properly using either the MLA or Turabian (Chicago Manual of Style) format. Essays that have any plagiarized material will receive zero points. Quizzes: There will be three quizzes in this course in Weeks 2, 4, and 6. Quizzes must be completed before the midnight on night deadline. Final Exam: The final exam in this course must be taken in a proctored setting. This will be a closedbook exam. You will not be able to use your text or other references or notes during the exam. Please see the information below about finding a proctor. I must have your proctor information by the end of Week 2. Submit your proctor information to the folder in the Dropbox. Course Schedule Week 1 Ancient Civilizations Readings: Chapter 1, Pages Discussion 1 In the "Introductions" discussion, introduce yourself to your fellow students. Please tell us a little about yourself, including your name and your major, and discuss any special interests you may have in history. If you don't think you have any interest in history, think about any movies you have seen that are set any time in the past. What intrigues you about the movie's setting? Discussion 2: How did geography, culture, and climate play a role in the development of different religious outlooks in Egypt, Mesopotamia, and Israel? How were the political and social structures of each civilization tied to its religious views?

5 Columbia College Online Campus P a g e 5 Week 2 Ancient Greece Readings: Chapters 2 and 3, Pages Discussion 3: If you could choose to live in one of the three Greek poleis featured in your textbook (Corinth, Athens, or Sparta), which would you prefer and why? In making your decision, be sure to consider both the major differences between these poleis and the cultural and philosophical ideas that unite them into a single culture. Discussion 4: How did the Greek view of the relationship between man and nature influence their conception of the Gods? How was this view expressed in Greek philosophy and the arts? Quiz 1: Covers material from Chapters 1-3, Pages Week 3 Ancient Rome Readings: Chapters 4 and 5, Pages Discussion 5: What factors led to the collapse of the Roman Republic and the emergence of the Roman Imperial government structure? Discussion 6: Did the emergence and growth of Christianity contribute to the decay of "Roman virtue"? Consider the ways Christianity came into conflict with the Roman State Religion. Take a look at the letter from Pliny to Trajan at Peter Kirby s collection of Early Christian Writings (http://www.earlychristianwritings.com/text/pliny.html). It may help you understand the issue of Roman persecution of the Christians. Discussion 7: Discuss the factors that contributed to the downfall of Roman imperial administration. What part did the Roman military, the influx of barbarian peoples, and the reforms of Constantine play in this transformation? Essay 1: Read the Funeral Oration of Pericles in the Ancient History Sourcebook at Fordham University (http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/ancient/pericles-funeralspeech.asp). Given the context of this speech, do you believe everything Pericles says about Athens in the Funeral Oration? Why or why not? Week 4 The Transformation of Europe Readings: Chapters 6 and 7, Pages Discussion 8: How did the Europe under the rule of the Charlemagne differ from Europe during the time of Constantine, and what did the title of "emperor" mean during each period?

Quiz 2: Covers material from Chapters 4-7, Pages Week 5 The High Middle Ages Readings: Chapters 8 and 9, Pages Discussion 10: How did medieval Universities differ from universities today? See Jacques de Vitry s description of medieval students (http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/source/vitry1.html) for one scholar s description of students in medieval universities.

6 Columbia College Online Campus P a g e 6 Discussion 11: Describe the social, political, and religious misfortunes of the 14th century and the effect of these events on the psychological and material fortunes of Europeans. Essay 2: Read Robert the Monk's account of Pope Urban II's call to crusade found on the Internet History Sourcebooks Project site at Why would Christians in the West be moved to embark on a dangerous journey to fight in the Holy Land after hearing Pope Urban's speech at Clermont? Week 6 The Renaissance Readings: Chapter 10, Pages Discussion 12: Why did the Renaissance start in Italy? Describe the role of the aristocratic courts of such powerful figures as the de Medicis and the papacy in engendering and sustaining this cultural revival. Discussion 13: The main goal of all Renaissance humanists was to fix their own world by recovering the glories of ancient Rome and Greece. How was this effort to revive antiquity reflected in the art and literature of the Renaissance? Quiz 3: Covers material from Chapters 8-10, Pages Course Evaluations: Please evaluate the course. You will have an opportunity to evaluate the course near the end of the session. A link sent to your CougarMail will allow you to access the evaluation.

Week 7 The Reformation Readings: Chapter 11, pages Discussion 14: What were some of the topics Luther raised in the 95 Theses (http://www.iclnet.org/pub/resources/text/wittenberg/luther/ninetyfive.txt)? What did he see as the major problems with the religious practices of his day? Discussion 15: Why did the Reformation happen in the early 16 th century after Martin Luther posted the 95 Thesis rather than earlier in response to other protests against Church practice? Essay 3: Read Luther s 95 Theses at the Internet Christian Library (http://www.iclnet.org/pub/resources/text/wittenberg/luther/ninetyfive.txt). Martin Luther wrote these propositions in order to engage in a debate with fellow theologians. How do the issues Luther present for debate illustrate the problems in the Church of his day? Week 8 The Early Modern World Readings: Chapter 12, 13, and 14, Pages Discussion 16: Identify the basic causes, both political and religious, of the bitter struggles of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in France, the Holy Roman Empire, and the Netherlands. Describe the political and religious dimensions of the settlement of each of these conflicts. Discussion 17: In what ways did the new science of Copernicus, Brahe, Kepler, and Galileo challenge not only the Aristotelian cosmos--foundation of all medieval science--but also the claims of the

7 Columbia College Online Campus P a g e 7 church? Discussion 18: How did Versailles symbolize the authority of the French king and how did the Louis XIV use Versailles as a way to establish and maintain power?
