Course description:
This is a 3-credit online course that satisfies the Comm-B General Education Requirement. In
addition, this course meets the History major “Historian’s Craft” requirement.
Shanghai has long been a global city. After the first Opium War concluded in 1842, Shanghai
became a focal point of encounters between China and the outside world. International settlements
and the Chinese city grew rapidly and Shanghai became famous for its cosmopolitan culture. This
course will explore daily life and crime as windows on the history of Chinese cities. After several
introductory readings and lectures, we will use English-language archival materials on Shanghai
held in online databases, to learn how to ask historical questions, find and evaluate sources, and
develop and present historical arguments. There will be write-ups of research assignments, and two
oral presentations (recorded and uploaded to the course website). There are quizzes on readings, but
no examinations. The course is designed to develop key historical skills:
1. Asking Questions: develop the habit of asking historical questions, including questions that
may generate new directions for historical research.
2. Finding Sources: learn the logic of footnotes, bibliographies, search engines, libraries, and
archives, and consult them to identify and locate source materials.
3. Evaluating Sources: determine the perspective, credibility, and utility of source materials.
4. Developing and Presenting an Argument: use sources appropriately to create, modify, and
support tentative conclusions and new questions.
5. Planning Further Research: draw upon preliminary research to develop a plan for further
investigation.
6. Communicating Findings Effectively: make formal and informal, written and oral
presentations tailored to specific audiences.
No Chinese language skills are necessary, however, if you can read Chinese and wish to use
Chinese sources, Professor Dennis is happy to direct you to them.
Readings
All readings for the course will be available on the Learn@UW class website or online through
the UW Library homepage or elsewhere. There are no books to buy.
Quizzes
Online quizzes follow assigned readings and lectures. They are mostly multiple choice, and
occasionally true/false. If you are not happy with your score, you can review the reading and take
the quiz again a second time. The “Five Treaty Ports” quiz can be taken unlimited times. You get
to keep your highest score.
Schedule
There are fifteen modules spread over four weeks. There are no daily deadlines the first three weeks,
but there are weekly deadlines. In the fourth week there are daily deadlines. Times are all Central
Time.
Modules 1-4 are due on Sunday night, May 31 at 11:59 p.m.
Modules 5-8 are due on Sunday night, June 7 at 11:59 p.m.
Module 9-12 are due on Sunday night, June 14 at 11:59 p.m.
Module 13 is due on Tuesday night, June 16 at 11:59 p.m.
Module 14 is due on Wednesday night, June 17 at 11:59 p.m.
Module 15 is due on Friday night, June 19 at 11:59 p.m., the last day of class.
The amount of time needed to complete the modules varies by assignment and your experience in
historical research and writing, so read through the assignments well in advance to get a sense of
how long they will take and when you should begin working on them. One of the most important
things in an online course is to block off time in your schedule to concentrate on the course. It takes
self-discipline and planning, and you may need to adjust your time as you go. You can work ahead
if you want, but it is important not to get behind because it is almost impossible to catch up in four
weeks if you get far behind. Taking a 3-credit course in four weeks is almost like taking a full-load
during the semester. In other words, it will likely take you most of the day. I estimate that the
average student will spend about 135 hours to complete the course. Note: You must do the
assignments in the order listed below; each assignment builds on the prior assignments!
Finding the Lessons (Modules) and Other Course Materials
The lessons are called “Modules” in the Canvas Learning Management System and are on
Learn@UW under the “Modules” link. They are arranged by number, 1-15, and are in Word and
pdf format.
Readings are pdf files that you can download and rotate on your computer to read (Command, Shift
+ or – will rotate 90 degrees, or right click and choose “Rotate”).
Lectures are PowerPoints with audio. If you do not have Microsoft Office software on your
computer (which contains Word and PowerPoint, etc.), you can download it for free from the DoIt
website using your UW NetID. Go to https://it.wisc.edu/services/office-365/
Please be aware that it is possible that some technical problems will pop up. For example, in
Canvas, audio files do not work in the preview mode, so it is best to download each lesson to your
computer and then go through the PowerPoints and listen to the audio lectures. Please promptly
inform Professor Dennis of any problems so he can try to fix them.
Part One: Background
Modules 1-4 are due on Sunday night, May 31 at 11:59 p.m.
Module One. Basic Background on Chinese Language, Geography, and History.
1. DOWNLOAD the PowerPoint “Welcome to the class” and listen to the audio lecture as
you go through the slides (click on the sound icon on the slide). AUDIO WON’T WORK
DIRECTLY FROM THE CANVAS PREVIEW SCREEN, SO DOWNLOAD FIRST.
2. From the “Modules” tab, download and fill out the “Student background sheet” and then
upload the completed sheet by clicking on the “Assignments” tab, then “Student background
sheet,” then the “Submit Assignment” button. Please be sure to let me know what times
would work best for you for my live online office hours at which I will answer questions
live on Blackboard Collaborate (an online conferencing function in Canvas). I will schedule
the times once enough students have filled out the sheets.
3. Introduce yourself to your “Small Group.” A list of Small Groups will be announced just
before class begins. Go to our course website on Learn@UW and click on the “Collaborate”
tab and look for the Google Doc for your group number. Write a paragraph about yourself
on the document. During the course, please feel free to work with the students in your group
to study or ask questions. There is no required group work or discussion due to the difficulty
of coordinating in such a short period across multiple time zones and work schedules, but I
have put discussion questions for the readings at the bottom of the “Modules” tab on
Learn@UW. I suggest looking at these before you read because they will make it more
likely that you will do well on the quizzes. If anyone is inclined, they should feel free to set
up discussions with one or more other students.
4. Open the PowerPoints “Basic Background” (parts 1 and 2) and listen to the audio lectures
as you go through the slides. I have broken this lecture into two parts to reduce the file size
and thus the download time. If anyone has trouble downloading, let me know and I can
separate the lecture into even smaller files.

Part Four: Final Project
Modules 9-12 are due Sunday, June 14 at 11:59 p.m.
Module 11. Final project primary source research.
It is important that you finish on time so that Professor Dennis can listen to your
presentation and give you timely feedback.
1. Pick a topic for your final project (which is a three-minute oral presentation), from the
following list:
a. A history of Chinese students at UW. The focus could be on one individual, a
particular subset such as “women,” “athletes,” or “engineers”; policies, daily life,
social or political groups, clubs, etc.
b. A history of UW alumni who worked or lived in China in the 1800s and 1900s.
The focus could be on one individual, a particular subset such as “professors,”
“businesspeople,” “government officials,” their daily lives, impact on China or
Wisconsin, etc.
c. A study of some type of criminality in Shanghai: prostitution, gambling, drugs, in
the late 1800s to early 1900s. If you do prostitution, don’t just repeat what
Hershatter says in the reading!
d. A study of one or more court cases and what they reveal about life in Shanghai in
the late 1800s to early 1900s.
e. A history of a particular kind of work in Shanghai in the late 1800s to early 1900s.
f. A study of religious activity in Shanghai in the late 1800s to early 1900s.
Because time is so tight in a four-week course, I strongly suggest picking a topic
for which you have already found at least a few good sources during the first
part of the class.
2. Conduct primary source research for your final project as directed in “Module 11, Final
Project Primary Sources Worksheet.” Upload completed worksheet to Assignment “Module
11 Final Project Primary Sources Worksheet.”
3. If you do not know how to make an audio recording and save it as an audio file, using a
phone, webcam, computer, etc., learn how. You can get software such as Audacity for sound
recording and editing, and Kaltura CaptureSpace Desktop Recorder for free through the
UW. You can record but not necessarily edit on most smart phones too.
4. Write out the text for a two-minute oral presentation on your research, including topic,
historical research questions you will pursue, primary sources you found already, and what
categories of secondary sources you will look for next and where you will look. When
Professor Dennis gives an academic lecture, he assumes that a 300-word text (about one
page, double spaced) will take about two minutes to present, but your pace might vary.
Practice your talk repeatedly and time it so you will not go over. Upload your written text to
Assignment “Module 11 Oral Presentation Written Text.”
5. Save an audio file to Assignments, “Module 11 Oral Presentation.” The instructors will
listen to the presentations beginning on the morning of June 11 and give feedback as quickly
as possible. Do not make a video unless you make it stream so that we don’t have to wait for
a huge file to download.
Modules 9-12 are due Sunday, June 14 at 11:59 p.m.
Module 12. Final Project Secondary Sources: Conduct secondary source research for your final
project as directed in “Module 12, Final Project Secondary Sources Worksheet.” Upload
completed worksheet to Assignments, “Module 12, Final Project Secondary Sources
Worksheet.”
Module 13. Due Tuesday, June 16 at 11:59 p.m. Final Project Annotated Bibliography:
1. Read: Rampolla, page 27 about annotated bibliographies.
2. Examine: “Module 13 Sample Annotated Bibliography.” This was one of the best ones
from a few years ago, and it can show you what one should look like (of course, every
example has flaws, so make yours even better!).
3. Write: An annotated bibliography with correct citation format. For citation format, please
use the “Basic Citation Sheet” found in the “Writing Resources” section of the Modules tab
on Learn@UW. If you are using Chinese or other foreign-language sources, please use the
“Asia Center House Style” sheet, which is also in the “Writing Resources” section. These
are based on the Chicago Manual of Style, which is standard for historical essays. The
Chicago Manual can be found online through the UW Library.
At this point you should have found and read everything you need for your paper and should
be figuring out what to do with it all. Creating and annotating a bibliography of all your
sources will force you to more carefully consider what is significant about each source, how
you can use it in your paper, and how the primary and secondary sources relate to each
other. I expect that your annotated bibliography will be 3 or 4 pages, double-spaced. But of
course, the more detailed your work, the closer you are to an actual text of your final
presentation.
4. Upload your completed annotated bibliography to Assignments, “Module 13, Annotated
Bibliography.”
Module 14. Due Wednesday, June 17 at 11:59 p.m. Final project: Sentence Outline for your
Presentation.
A sentence outline will force you to think about how everything you have goes together to
make a coherent argument related to one or more historical questions. Use complete
sentences for each entry. The entries will consist of general headings with subsidiary
points, put into a logical order that helps build the argument as it progresses. Each paragraph
will have a topic sentence. Below each topic sentence you should list the evidence that
supports the point. I expect your outline will be about three pages.
1. Examine: “Module 14 Sentence Outline Sample.” This was done by the same student as
the Module 13 annotated bibliography sample. You can see how his argument progressed.
Please note that both samples were done during the regular semester and were leading up to
a final ten-page paper, so they are longer than what you need to do in this summer
version of the class.
2. Write the Sentence Outline.
3. Upload your completed outline to Assignments, “Module 14, Sentence Outline.”
Module 15. Final project Completion:
1. Write: The text for your three-minute oral presentation.
2. Make: Your audio presentation and save it as an audio file.
3. Upload: Your final audio oral presentation to Assignments, “Module 15 Final Oral
Presentation.” Upload your written text to Assignments, “Module 15 Final Oral Presentation
Written Text.”
All assignments must be completed and uploaded to Assignments by 11:59 p.m. on June 19,
2019.
Module 16: Relax and enjoy the rest of the summer having completed your Comm-B requirement,
and for history majors, your Historian’s Craft requirement!

Grading scale:
A=93-100
AB=88-92.9999999999999999999999999
B=83-87. 99999999999999999999999999

D=60-69.99999999999999999999999999
F=>60
As you might notice from the above, you need to hit the whole-number minimum for each grade
level. That means a 92.51, or a 92.97 will not be rounded up to a 93 for an “A”. Grades in this
class tend to be high because you can retake quizzes, you should be able to tell if you got
everything on the work sheets as you do them, and you can track your grades easily.
