- Each week students will be responsible for reading the Unit materials. Within each Unit on the Viewing American website, students must read the Document of the Week as well as the Archive materials.
Most of the reading assignments are provided online in PDF format and can be retrieved directly from the syllabus by following the available links. The rest of the required reading can be purchased either at the University Bookstore or from the online retailer of your choice. All the reading materials will be on reserve at Clemons Library.
Recommended Text. Students who would like more background on twentieth-century U.S. history can refer to the recommended text listed below. This is not required reading and you will not be tested on it, although you may find background information in it that is useful for your papers, exams, and CYOU project. Copies of the recommended text are available at the bookstore, at on-line booksellers, and on reserve at Clemons.
All the films assigned for the course are required. Films will be on reserve at the Robertson Media Lab in Clemons. You may also view them on Tuesdays, 7 pm, in Clemons 201. Mr. Balogh or one of the teaching assistants will lead a discussion after each public showing. Attendance is not required; it's just fun.
