- “shared” settings set to “anyone at Muhlenberg can comment” for peer review purposes.
- Line spacing 1.5.

- First version is not graded, don’t panic if you’re not yet at 800 words on Friday night: submit what you have.
- Rewrite: possible, based on feedback and peer reviews.
- List of materials
Due by Sept. 24, 6PM:
- Weekly reflection the materials/class connected to Wednesday Sept. 18 or Friday Sept. 20.
- Google form for places and dates for Wed. Sept. 18’s class and materials.
- Google form for places and dates for Fri. Sept. 20′ class and materials.
- Tip: If you can’t find three place names or dates: do a bit of extra research (e.g.: dates of the writers? locations connected to Qin’s development?), and if you’re really stuck, as a last resort: enter random text for the entries you can’t come up with.
- Make a list of big themes and topics covered so far through primary sources, and bring to class on Wed. Sept. 25:
- Think about connections between primary sources: e.g. “government structures”, “family values”,… rather than “bronzes”, “Zhou dynasty”
- Look through fellow students’ weekly reflections to find inspiration; definitely leave a comment if they sparked an idea.
Declaration: Read the following carefully, then go to Canvas and fill out the quiz. (This helps me to keep an overview)
- I wrote my weekly reflection covering materials for the class on either Sept. 18 or 20.
- I made suggestions using the google forms for the timeline and map, for both classes (Sept. 18 and Sept. 20)
- I have a list of big topics or themes that we have covered in the course through primary sources, to be used in class on Wed. Sept. 25.
- I am getting started on my primary source analysis, and will submit a first version on Sept. 27.
