humanities 6 - M. D. Reddick
W E L C O M E TO PACE - HUMANITIES 6
Instructor: Mona Dallas Reddick, Ph.D.
The information on this page will help acquaint you with PACE and give you a chance to browse some of the materials used in Humanities 6. A syllabus that provides information on course requirements and assignments will be handed out in class and posted on our Etudes course site. I’m happy to answer any questions you have about Humanities 6. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
How PACE Classes Work
In addition to meeting one night a week for two hours, our class also meets on selected Saturdays for four hours. Consult the online schedule of classes at lahc.edu under the PACE Section for the list of Saturdays that we meet. For Spring 2014, in addition to meeting at 5:45 p.m. on Thursday night for two hours, we will also meet on selected Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to noon, with appropriate breaks.
PACE classes require online instruction as well as in-classroom attendance. The online instruction is delivered through Etudes. If you are enrolled in this course, you will automatically be added to the Etudes roster and have access to all the online materials. It's important to check your student email (laccd email) regularly for my frequent announcements about our class, and also look to see that you can access the Humanities 6 tab on your Etudes page the first week of classes. Students are uploaded to the roster usually several days before the first class meeting.
What are the Etudes Activities and Assignments?
For our class, you will take quizzes, watch videos, explore interactive websites, and participate in online discussions. Other requirements follow regular class formats, such as papers, in-class exams, and group activities.
Room Location: On the first day of class, look for PACE room assignments posted on the doors of the NEA Bldg. and on the hall door of NEA that leads into the suite of faculty offices and the PACE office, which is directly across the hall from NEA 109.
Important: After enrolling, check to see if you have internet access to library databases. A number of resources for our class (readings and visuals) will be available online. For information on setting up your user name and i. d., visit http://www.lahc.edu/library/remotefaq.html
Its also a good idea to obtain a Los Angeles Public Library card. Check the phone book or online for a branch nearest you. With a library card you can request books from the vast holdings of the Central Branch and have them sent to your local branch for pick-up.
Plan on obtaining a student i.d. once classes begin. I.d.'s are issued on the second floor of Seahawk Center. Phone no. 310-233-4594. With a student i.d. you are entitled to various discounts on entry fees, for instance at museums, and the i.d. can double as your library card.
