Class Notes: This is an online course with 3 proctored exams.

The classes are given live (with recording for those who can't attend the live online classes) on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:30 PM-6:45 PM. You are expected to either participate in the online classes live or watch the recordings of the online class before the next class. There are 4 special classes in the semester. The first class we will hold live, in person, on the Portland campus. It will be offered live online, for those who cannot attend face-to-face, and will also be recorded for those who cannot do either. The first class sets up the rest of the course: how to retrieve the student data files for the course, how to submit homework electronically on Blackboard, and an introduction to the Adobe Connect software that allows us to have live online classes. The other three special classes are for taking your course exams. They will be offered face-to-face on the Portland campus. For those who live at a distance, you will need to register with University College to take the exams at a site that is more convenient to you. You must register within the first 2 weeks of the semester. When you register you will be able to choose the location for the exam. You will then be notified who to contact to set up the exam time. You will have a window of 2 days (the day of the exam through the next day) to take the exam if you will be taking it at a proctored location. The special classes/proctored exams are scheduled on the following dates from 4:30 PM-6:45 PM on the Portland campus (or proctored exam site): 1st class (face-to face) Tue 05/12/15 4:30 PM - 6:45PM 202 Luther Bonney (alternative is live online class or recording) 1st exam (1 hour) TUE 5/31/15 4:30 PM - 6:45 PM 202 Luther Bonney (alternative: registered proctored exam site) 2nd exam (1 hour) TUE 6/14/15 4:30 PM - 6:45 PM 202 Luther Bonney(alternative: registered proctored exam site) 3rd exam (2 hours) THU 6/23/15 4:30-6:30PM 202 Luther Bonney(alternative: registered proctored exam site) Course requirements include: computer literacy, access to Microsoft Excel 2013 for Microsoft Windows (requires Windows 7 or Windows 8), and access to a computer with a high speed internet connection. You also need to have ear/headphones or computer speakers to be able to listen to class. If you get a headset with a microphone, you will also be able talk to the class, but this is not required as there is a chat feature for communication.

If you do not have the software and own a PC (not a MAC), we highly recommend you get the book at the USM Book Store so you can get the trial version of software. If you already have the required software (MS Excel 2013 for Microsoft Windows) you do not have to buy the book from the USM Book Store. (It is often much less expensive online). If you do not have a PC and plan on using the University computers to complete your work, you do not need the software, therefore you do not have to buy the book from the USM Book Store. The USM Computer Store has 2 other options for obtaining Excel 2013. 1. For $72.00 you can get a subscription to Office 365. This is a 4-year subscription for one user and includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, & Outlook. You are allowed to install it on 2 PC's. 2. For $125.00 you can purchase Office Home & Student 2013. This is a no expiration purchase which includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. You are allowed to install it on one PC. If you want to use a MAC to do your work, you need 4 things: 1. MAC operating system Mountain Lion 2. Virtual Machine software (most MACs come with BootCamp which will do the trick and there are others available, even a free version on the Internet). 3. MS Excel 2013 for Microsoft Windows. If you buy the book from the USM Book Store the software will be included as a 180 day trial version. 4. Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows 8, which you will need to purchase unless you already have it.

Study of an author, a literary form, a sequence of texts, or specific area or genre of creative writing, or some other special topic not included in the regular curriculum. Prerequisite(s): To be determined for each course. (Pass/Fail Option) Every Year. CR 4. Misty Krueger    Class Number: 21323

Class Notes: $10.00 Course Fee Jane Austen's Adolescent Angst. Do you think that you know Jane Austen? If you haven't read her early writings, you will be surprised at what you will find. Long before Pride and Prejudice was published, Jane Austen had written three volumes of juvenilia (including parodies, poetry, plays, and short fiction), had submitted a novel entitled Susan for publication (posthumously published as Northanger Abbey), and had published a novel (Sense and Sensibility). This course explores Austen's pre-Pride and Prejudice works in order to give students an understanding of the young, developing writer's body of work. Readers will encounter a writer who can be immature and sarcastic at times, yet witty and clever at all times. Students will consider both what Austen's early work shows about the author's range of style, subject matter, and characterization, and how a look at the younger Austen's writing produces a full image of the famed writer. Because the course will be an online course, it will focus on the digital: all texts will be online too. Prerequisite: ENG 100.

Class Notes: By the end of the Second World War, Americans were experiencing unprecedented economic, political, and ideological success. But a darker side of American culture was also exposed for the first time: new genres of film and popular fiction began to explore America¿s anxiety-ridden ¿underneath.¿ Rather than extol the ideologically mainstream virtues of a victorious nation, film noir and pulp fiction laid bare its anxieties over the place of women, masculine identity, the (re) socialization of returning war veterans (the employment of the G.I. Bill being just one of the most noted pieces of legislation), the emptiness of the ¿American dream,¿ the advent of the nuclear family, rampant materialization, and the atomic bomb. We will follow the development of pulp fiction and film noir from its 1940s emergence to the present day; viewings to include Out of the Past, Detour, Kiss Me Deadly, and Touch of Evil; readings to include The Big Sleep, The Phantom Lady, and conclude with Gone Girl.
