Section A will focus on learning and understanding the full philosophical heritage that influenced our founders in creating the US Constitution, including the Preamble and Articles I-VII. We'll look at the influences of Classical Greek and Roman, Medieval, Renaissance, and Enlightenment philosophers, as well as the history of all Thirteen Colonies. We'll see how our founders used various ideas and reasoning in the development and constructing of the U. S. Constitution.
The course goes through 16 lessons. Each lesson involves approximately 90 minutes of reading, followed by cumulative reading review quizzes. Quizzes are untimed, open book, and customized for independent students. Students are allowed to retake quizzes, with reordered content, as often as they wish until they are satisfied with their grades. The course is asynchronous, meaning students can pace themselves through assignments, though there are suggested due dates to help students finish the course during the summer.
This is our class site. We'll use it to navigate to other key Internet tools to learn, collaborate and study together. We'll use Moodle for its great test bank features. To log in to Moodle, registered students should type in their first name (no capital letters) as their user name, and the word Government (with a capital "G") as their beginning password. First time users will then immediately receive a prompt to set up their own password. It is very important to write this down and remember it. See the video below to follow this Moodle login process:
