Return to Historical Archaeology Syllabus

Every student will present one reading to the class. Presenters should prepare a powerpoint that summarizes the reading's main points, assess its strengths and weaknesses, and provide some initial ideas to guide the discussion. All students will be prepared to participate in class discussions of the readings, so the presenter's duty is to begin that discussion. 

Readings are assigned on a voluntary basis: if you do not volunteer to present one of the readings by September 8, I will assign you to one at random. The line ABOVE the reading indicates the person who is presenting that reading: please do not get confused and prepare the wrong reading for class.

All class readings are either online, on Oncourse, or in the course's single textbook; readings in In Small Things Forgotten are indicated by chapter number.

Email me if you have any questions.
