Bill -

I have been teaching a NYS history course at SUNY Cortland for the past couple of years.

It was offered as a graduate course last summer, and will be again this summer. The summer sessions are very short. Last summer 25 students (the course limit) enrolled.

I used John Thompson's Geography of NY as the common text, and had about 25 books on reserve for the individually selected topical reading.  The first few classes were generally lecture, but after that the students discussed their library research.  Since most of the students were teachers, I assigned a final project in which the students prepared a lesson plan and dbq's based on the topical reading they had done.
