|This is the home page for Dr. Tom Isern's course in the history of the Great Plains of North America, taught at North Dakota State University. Students, this website is essential to your progress in the course. Everyone else, feel free to look around.|
Note: the course DOES NOT use Blackboard. It does, however, use Facebook as a medium of instruction, and so you need to have a Facebook account.
The course follows an unusual format, meeting in the evening once weekly (Monday), with each class session incorporating several distinct instructional modes, from old-fashioned lecture to informal and interactive. The course serves History majors as well as general-education students, and community members wishing to audit for personal enrichment are encouraged to come on in, too.
