History | Teaching World History II: PRACTICUM
H592 | 3016 | Shopkow

Obtain on-line authorization for above section from graduate
H592:  P– HIST H591 with Professor Shopkow

In this course, the sequel to H591 “Teaching World History,”
you will teach courses in world history based on the syllabi you
designed in the earlier course. These courses will be offered
as regular courses in the History Department, under the course number
W300. Students taking W300 will receive credit for taking a “world
history” course, if they require such credit.

You will have successfully completed H591; while taking that course
you and a team member will have designed a syllabus, approved by me,
which will be the course syllabus for your W300 course. Instructor
authorization is required to participate in T500.

Participants’ Responsibilities
Each of you, together with your team partner,  will have all of the
responsibilities of teaching the courses (ordering books, preparing
handouts, lecturing, running discussions, writing and giving
examinations, holding regular office hours, doing student
evaluations, and assigning grades). In other words, your
responsibilities to the history department will be the same as any
other instructors teaching for the department. You will also be
entitled to the same support from the History Department as any other
instructor (having hand-outs and exams duplicated).

You should make sure that I have a copy of every hand-out you give in
class and every exam.

Instructor Responsibilities
As the supervisor of T500, I will attend all the classes I can
(except exams) and be available for consultation with participants in
the course whenever they or I feel it necessary to do so. In
addition, we will meet as a group on a regular basis to touch base
with each other and discuss any common issues that may have arisen.
If there is any extraordinary problem in your classroom, I will
intervene in your class; otherwise, I will leave you to solve the
ordinary problems that face us all by yourselves, although, of
course, I will be available to consult about them!

My assessment will be based on my observation of your class and upon
your materials. I will not examine your student evaluations, although
you should arrange for your students to do evaluations, which will
form part of your teaching portfolio. I will write an assessment for
your class as a whole and one of your performance as a teacher in it
which will be placed in your file.
