Kiersti Ford, an Instructor at Fresno State, developed an assignment where students are asked to investigate the Lemurians of Mt. Shasta. In addition to the detailed instructions, the instructor has included a Course Learning Outcomes Alignment. Students will take notes as they read through the provided links and additional research is encouraged. Students then submit a reflection/reaction on their thoughts or impression of the stories on a shared Google Doc prior to submitting an essay. This assignment is available for import in Canvas Commons.
