U.S. Military History
On 15, 22, 29 July, and on 5 August (the Mondays of each week), there will be a short, 100 point exam at the beginning of each period. This exam will cover the material addressed during the previous week, as well as the outside reading for weeks 1-4. Each exam will consist of one essay (drawn primarily from the book), and 5 identification items (you will be offered a choice). These exams will be worth a collective total of 400 points.
On 8 August, you will take the final exam that will consist of two parts. The first will be identical to the previous exams, and will include materials from the lectures as well as for the readings in week 5. The second portion will be comprehensive in nature, and will address the larger questions regarding the emergence and nature of an American military tradition. This exam will be worth 200 points.
Attendance will be taken. Absences in excess of two will result in a grade reduction of one letter grade for each absence beyond the second. Keep in mind that this is an intensive course, and missing one day constitutes missing two in a regular MWF schedule.
Make up exams will not be given.
