Spring 2014
PLS 1010-800, 801 Ms. Carole Graham, JD

There is one required textbook for this course:
Selected Material from American Democracy Now, 3rd Edition by Harrison, Harris and Deardorff.  As the title indicates, this textbook is comprised of selected chapters from American Democracy Now, 3rd Edition, which is published by McGraw-Hill.
Our “version” of the textbook, bundled with McGraw-Hill Connect access (an online program discussed below), is available from the UNCP bookstore.   

The ISBN number assigned to our textbook (9781259143410) is unique; therefore our “version” of the textbook is probably not available from outside textbook sellers.  You can find more information about the full version of the textbook here

  • Buying the wrong textbook from a seller other than the UNCP Bookstore is NOT a valid excuse for missing assignment deadlines.

 Registration for Connect is required
 Connect is a companion website created and maintained by McGraw-Hill, the publisher of our textbook.  While Connect is integrated with Blackboard, you must register for Connect and synchronize it with Blackboard in order to access certain assignments in this course.  Each NEW textbook purchased from the UNCP Bookstore SHOULD be packaged with an access card/registration code for the companion website McGraw-Hill Connect. 

  • To register for Connect, Click on the green “Connect” button on the left hand side of the Blackboard page for our course
  • Then click on “Go to my Connect section”, which is located at the top left hand side of the page
  • Follow the registration instructions listed on the page
  • FYI - An e-book version of the text is available through Connect

 Notes about Connect Registration: 

  • Visit the Connect Success Academy for answers to frequently asked question regarding Connect registration. 
  • Additional help is available from Connect Customer Support
  • I am not able to fix any registration issues you might have with Connect (for example, your access code does not work).  Please contact Connect Customer Support for assistance.
  • It is your responsibility to successfully register for Connect as soon as possible.

If you purchased a used textbook without a Connect access code, don’t worry!  Follow the Connect registration instructions listed above, scroll down to the bottom of the page, and then click “How to buy access online”.
