Landmarks in Humanities Gloria K. Fiero, Third Edition| McGraw-Hill Higher Education 13-978-0-07-337664-6 Available at your school’s bookstore or online from McGraw-Hill http://connect.mcgraw-hill.com/class/d_mahan_01z2_2 ASSIGNMENTS: All of your assignments are laid out for you in MyConnect and under Content in Blackboard. Once you have access to MyConnect, you will be able to see every assignment. You have access to all homework assignments at 8 AM on January 14th. Each assignment has a due date. I do not accept the assignment after the due date (actually you can still submit with a 10% reduction per hour rate), but it must be submitted on or before the 8 AM due date to get full credit. There are no exceptions to this. All assignments are available to you now. Be aware of the due date, which is the last day to submit and get credit for your work!

Keep taking the quiz until you get all the questions right in order to receive full credit for the assignment. Each question is worth one point. The Unit Exam questions are taken directly fromthese quizzes. So, you are learning the information that will be on your exams. Essay Questions You have a series of essay questions as homework for each chapter as well. There are usually three questions per chapter, but there are a couple of chapters with only two. Each question has a value of ten points. Your answers to the questions should be a well-developed paragraph in your best writing. I’m grading your writing. Give the question some thought, and give me your best writing work. Above all else, do not plagiarize!!! Copy nothing from any other source, and do not quote the book. Any plagiarism receives a zero. I am a tyrant about this! I insist that the answers to...
