Course Syllabus

This is an open-ended, self-paced course. The recommendation is to work through one module each week, but you may do more or less as your schedule allows. You should work through the lessons in order, however, as ideas and concepts are built upon throughout the course in a fairly linear fashion.


There are a total of 12 MODULES, each includes the following:

  • Overview & Objectives
    • Includes introduction, topics, covered, and specific module objectives
  • Read About It
    • Includes the content and instructional narrative for the module
  • Write About It
    • Writing assignments for your class Journal
  • Test Your Learning
    • Practice quizzes and assessments to test your knowledge of class concepts


  • There is no textbook required for the course. All materials are contained within the course modules and the external links document.
  • Youwill need a blank journal of some kind for the course.This can be a hard-copy item that you purchase or you can create a digital journal on your computer.


There are no graded assignments for the course. The quizzes are automatically graded and may be repeated multiple times for practice.


Time to complete each lesson will vary depending upon your interest in the content for that lesson, the time that you spend on the narrative section (reading, looking at images, exploring links and videos), and the time that you spend writing (and the number of journal prompts you decide to complete). If you want to get the most out of the materials presented, you should plan to spend at least 4 - 5 hours on each module.


There is no official prerequisite for this course although a writing course (such as English 101) is recommended.
