How the course is taught
For Distance students, the class is asynchronous with all readings and
assignments completed by each student. All assignments must be submitted by
their posted due dates.
The class is divided into nine modules and 11 assignments. Each section
contains one or more chapters. Contained within each chapter is an outline of
relevant material from a book, including web links to related information. The
outlines are intended to guide you through the reading, and they are double
spaced so that you may print them and supplement them with your own notes.
You should read and complete each book and assignment in order by the due dates
listed. Generally, each topic will consist of required reading(s) from a book,
presentation of on-line materials, on-line activities, and an assignment.
