in place of a syllabus (handout for first class)
I will be teaching another freshman seminar in Fall 2005.
INTRODUCTION AND GOALS (of 2000 course)
Freshman seminars (UCSB freshman seminar program website) give students an opportunity to get acquainted with a professor and the professor's research in a small group setting. I teach German history, and my particular specialty is the different ways Germans have reacted to and thought about the Nazi period of their country's past since the end of World War II. This includes how the Holocaust has been taught in German schools.
My goals for this course are to learn more about what you have learned and what interests you about German history and the Holocaust. I am about to start writing a textbook based on primary sources (historical documents) for use by high school teachers. I hope your experiences and thoughts can guide me to make a better selection of materials.
As for your goals, I am very eager to hear about them! If you haven't done so already, please give it some thought and let me know!
