Norton Mix: History

The Homework Assignments in this class will general revolve around the “Readings From the Norton Mix: History” section found in the back of your textbook. Generally, you will be asked to read 3-4 of the small, 2-4 page readings, and then answer a number of questions based on them.

Your responses should be 1-2 pages, double spaced, typed, in 12pt Times New Roman font. They are to be turned in, printed out, to your assigned grader on the due date indicated in your syllabus.
