None, except students are expected to print out the appropriate maps and map locations for each of the countries.  I will post the pdf document link to the classroom prior to each meeting.  Please look for the links to the maps in the classroom. I only send links to individual students if they have enrolled after the links have been posted to the classroom.

Students will need access to a printer so they may print out the PDF maps I send them.  These maps should be printed out before class so that they may be used during class.  Sometimes we might use more than one map.... it all depends on the country.

55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I will most likely discuss the history of many of these countries.  We all know that history is full of disturbing, yet important events. These events may be discussed, but not in great detail.  The age and sensitivities of the students will be respected.
