Text Change Proposal Form

This form enables honors faculty to have a richer and more informed discussion about curricular change. This form will be used to plan the agenda for the May meeting, and all curricular change proposals will be shared with all Honors Civilizations stakeholders one week prior to the May meeting, so all can have time to think about the proposed change and respond to it from an informed perspective. Please use this form to suggest changes to the Honors Civilizations sequence. The form is due online no fewer than 10 days before the end of year meeting. Your proposal will then be shared with all honors preceptors before the meeting, so all can be prepared to discuss and vote on your proposal.
  • Other honors-affiliated people who support this proposal. Please separate with comma.
  • Please list title, author, edition, and any other relevant information.
  • Please list ISBN number of your text suggestion, and confirm that the text is available (currently in print).
  • If the proposed change is a new edition of a currently-used text, explain your rationale for the change (you needn’t fill out the rest of the form if you are simply proposing a new edition or translation)
  • If the proposed change is a new reading or unit, please explain your rationale. Where in the sequence will it be placed, what information or knowledge does it convey that is important, and why is it an appropriate addition?
  • Will the proposed text or unit replace a preexisting unit? Which one, and why do you believe it should replace it? If it is an addition to a preexisting unit, how will students and preceptors manage the extra material in the allotted time? If your proposed change constitutes a new unit, how will it fit into the lecture sequence?
  • Whom would you suggest as a potential lecturer on this topic? Please name THREE people, and explain why their disciplinary perspective on the text would be helpful.
