HIS 200 Week 1 Short Response Guidelines and Rubric Overview: The short response activities in the webtext throughout this course are designed to show your understanding of key concepts as you engage with course content. Prompt: During the first week of the course, you will respond to several questions in the webtext as you complete each learning block.
