Information for Last Week of Spring 2020 Semester

We have (almost!) made it through a truly strange and historic semester. Thank you for your patience and persistence as we adjusted and readjusted to all the changing circumstances and new realities.

Some reminders for this last week:

I will update grades in Blackboard for all your submitted work over the next week, hopefully with final grades in place by the 11th or 12th.

If you need an extension for any classwork beyond that point, please email me to make arrangements and discuss options.

You have until May 22 to decide if you want to take this class pass/fail. Forms for that can be found in the student portal of WSU under I do not know, and do not need to be informed, whether you are taking this class P/F or not — it’s between you and the registrar.

I have posted the third and final Discussion Forum. Your post (worth 10 points) is due by the end of day (11:59 pm) on Wed May 6. This forum takes the place of an online class on Tuesday the 5th.

The Final Exam will be available at 6 am on Thursday, May 7, and is due by 11:59 pm same day.

Questions on the final will be drawn from syllabus vocabulary terms and from questions in the Guided Notes provided for Volume 2, Chapters 2-15 and The American Military, pp. 68-127. The final is open book, open resource, open internet, and open note. However, I will give priority grading to answers that use the resources provided on Blackboard and the course website, and that are thoughtfully crafted in your own words . Responses that cut-and-paste directly from internet content, including from Wikipedia, will receive no credit.

Please email me with any questions or concerns.

Best wishes ~ Dr. Hangen
