  1. I ask that you do your best to keep up with the slack group discussion (see weekly course schedule for discussion questions), and that you use that virtual space to talk to one another. If you are unable to contribute a particular week, please try to let your fellow group members know. If you notice that one of your group members has not contributed recently, please reach out to see if they are doing ok. For those of you who attend the in-person sessions, I will try to leave some time at the end of each class for you to be able to work on this.
  2. In addition to participating in the slack group discussion, you will be responsible for writing two (2) posts on your Medium page in response to discussion questions posted in the course schedule (week 3 and week 7). These responses will ask you to reflect on the readings, so please keep up as best as you can.
  3. Your final project asks that you to think like a historian: take one topic or theme that we considered in this course, and think about how you would approach it differently, based on your own positionality. Please click here for the prompt.
