African American Studies/History
Among my favorite classes to teach, Several times I taught a lower division version of this class at West Hills Community College, and one of my best teaching experiences was teaching the upper division version of the class at UC Merced. I look forward to teaching both versions, again, in the future.
This is the syllabus from the last time I taught the upper division African American History class at UC Merced.
Chicago (Turabian) Manual of Style Quick Guide: For all assignments in my history classes you are required to cite every source you use (quoted, paraphrased, referenced, or based upon). You MUST use the footnote (referred to here as "Notes and Bibliography) format in your papers. I require all written assignments to include a Works Cited page -- not a Bibliography or Reference page. If you do not know the difference, be sure to ask in class.
Any paper not including citations will receive a zero (0). Any paper not including a properly formatted Works Cited page will receive a zero (0).
