Classroom Goals:
I want every individual who enters this room to come in with questions, an open mind to a variety of ideas, and a willingness to discuss any relevant issues.  This class will be what you make it, and that includes how much effort you put into it.  I expect you, as students, to ask questions so that you may better understand any links, or cause & effect in history.  You must have an open mind towards all historical inquiry lest we fail to find new answers to old questions.  Discussion is the foundation of this class and all view points are valued.  

You have a VOICE!  Lets learn how to use it together.
