This course consists of fourteen (14) weekly thematic modules.

Classes start on January 11, 2021.

Students will complete the contents of each weekly module independently. By Friday of each week you should complete the vocabulary quiz at Blackboard.  By Sunday of each week, you will also create a Discussion post reflecting ideas and themes covered during the weekly Zoom Meet Up, and comment on two other posts. Unless a student contacts an instructor in advance, posts timestamped after Sunday at midnight AkST will receive zero credit.

Midterm assignments are due at the end of week 6 (ending February 21, 2021). See the Midterm Assignment page for details and videos on how to approach your project.

Final assignments are due at the end of module 14 (due April 28, 2021 at 8:00pm AkST). See Final Assignment page for instructions for developing your essay.
