The break is about over! Classes begin at JMU on Monday and I am looking forward to getting back to work. I have all my books and am ready to go! This semester will be different from the first in that there will not be any uncertainty for the first few weeks. We all know exactly what to expect. The three courses I am taking could not sound better! The majority of those who voted in my poll chose HIST 593 as their choice and I can certainly understand why. Historic preservation (architectural) is a very important skill for a public historian and having the opportunity to place a historic building on the National Register of Historic Places will be a worth-while experience.
As you may have noticed, some of my more resent posts have not been about grad school, but about subjects that interest me, and, I hope, interest the readers. I plan to do this more often this semester and share some of my historic interests. I will also try to explain each course in more detail after I have had a few weeks to feel them out. I think this semester will be better than the last because I am now well adept to the expectations of grad school.
As I mentioned in earlier posts, I have a new position this semester. My Teaching Assistantship assignment will be History Day. I do not have alot of details, but should find out everything next week, so you can expect an update on History Day then. I helped with History Day at MSSU and I look forward to doing it again!
Until next time…
