Other in-person and on-campus activities:

There are no other in-person and on-campus activities.

Technology:

 You don't need to purchase a physical textbook to use this class. Some students, however, prefer a physical textbook. If so, I highly recommend Eric Foner's Give Me Liberty. It is a more conventional, chronlogical history textbook than The American Yawp, which some studetns find difficult to follow (although some students really like The American Yawp). If you chose to purchase Give Me Liberty, I recommend finding an inexpensive used copy. In other words, you don't need the most recent edition for this course.
