CLA 101: INTRODUCTION TO CLASSICAL CIVILIZATIONS - Notes Professor: ANDREW GRAHAM Lecture 1 - Sept 8th Lecture Title: Introduction and Syllabus Review Professor Andrew Graham is an archaeologist (Not a Classicist) During the introduction lecture on September 8th a few interesting, and important, points were emphasized: - The Mid-term test includes material up to and including October 13th, 2009 class. - You can look at previous exams on the library website in preparation for the exam to help you get an understanding of what to expect. - Online practice maps will be available to the class to assist you with the each of the map quizzes. Utilizing the online practice maps will count toward your participation mark! - (paraphrased) "We don't have history until we have writing." [Prof. Graham] - Everyone should know where the Persian Gulf is on the world map! Numerous wars have either been named after this "gulf" due to the fact that, sadly, numerous wars have been fought in and around that area, which was covered constantly by most, if not all, of the major News Networks. - Heinrich Schliemann discovered Troy! Without this discovery many movies/books, for example the movie Troy, starring Brad Pitt, wouldn't have been produced/made. - The assignment(s) doesn't need to be in a specific format but any references made, or the references rather, should be in MLA form. -We will need a USB key (1 gigabyte or higher) for the Google Earth Assignment -HMALC, located on the 1st floor of the library, is also known as the Smart Classroom, where the tutorials will sometimes take place A Few Additional Reminders: - Course readings MUST be completed; it is recommended that you do the readings on time for the lectures or it will be difficult, if not impossible, to pass or to earn an appealing grade. - The course readings can be accessed on the UTM website under "Portal", located under "CLA 101" after logging in, and finally "Course Documents." If you have any problems and require assistance in accessing the readings, it is your responsibility to ask for assistance via the Prof. Graham, or the librarian(s). -Professor Graham made it VERY clear that submitting the same assignment to his class and another one is STILL plagiarism despite the fact that it is hopefully all the student's own work. - Start learning the areas on interests located on the maps now (the earlier the better). (It is this editor's view that it is better to take interest and learn the locations instead of trying to memorize them, since this will make the task interesting and, ironically, less of a task). * An effective way of memorizing the maps is to divide each map into strips. Memorize a strip a day, and come "quiz time", you will do fine.
