Environmental Geography Web Course ~~ Summer I

(subject to change with notice)

This is an 80/20 class. It will meet only on the dates indicated, but students are strongly encouraged to meet individually with the professor as often as the need may arise. Students can also decide to study together in groups, just as they would for other classes.

The course has been designed to minimize on-campus time requirements, but to make maximum use of the time that is spent on campus. For this reason, it is imperative to attend all of the sessions indicated below. If you have prior plans that conflict with ANY of the scheduled meetings, I recommend that you do not take the course at this time.

Chalkboard sessions cover topics or approaches that work better in class than online. They also provide a chance for students to get to know each other.

The work in this class follows a weekly rhythm, according to the chapter numbers of the text book. Note that some chapters are not included. The work schedule below indicates each week by the Monday date. Within each week, work must be done as described below. Students are welcome to log in on evenings, mornings as long as the comple the work within each weekly time frame. Students should plan to login several times each week -- almost daily is best. We will cover two to three chapters each week.

This means two things are "due" at the same time. If this does not work for you, figure out which one you would like to complete first!

This schedule is flexible enough that holidays do not affect it (other than influencing my choice
of actual meeting times). In other words, please work around the holidays!

Each exam covers the chapters listed above it, plus recycled questions from prior exams, as described in the syllabus.
