I’m finding your book Setting the Records Straight quite helpful as I learn to write course descriptions. That’s triggered three hopefully simple questions though.
May I use the course descriptions from the book, both the page layout and the actual sentences describing the course, as a starting point for my own?
If only part of a book is read, do I indicate that with something like Title (Partially read)?
Are supplemental texts assumed to have been read in entirety unless noted?
I want to be honest in reporting what texts we used, but it seems we should not have to finish the whole thing to make it count. For example, we used the sourcebook of primary texts from The History of US for American history, but we certainly did not read the entire thing. Thanks for your advice!
Supplemental texts read in full: complete name of book.
Excerpts: partially read book that was used as a supplement.
Clear as mud? Or good to go?
This was helpful. Thanks! Just to be clear: for supplemental texts, you would NOT use the word "excerpts," but you would use that word for other partially read books?
