Paeth Assistant Pfoessor of Aerospace Studies, Air Force ROTC Detachment 925 608-262-3440; firstname.lastname@example.org Fall 2013; Friday, 0850 - 0940; Goodhue Hall RM: 313 Course Description: This is a course designed to examine general aspects of air and space power through a historical perspective. The course covers a time-period from the first balloons and dirigibles to the space-age systems of the Global War on Terror. Historical examples are provided to extrapolate the development of Air Force distinctive capabilities and missions to demonstrate the evolution of what has become today’s USAF air and space power. Furthermore, the course examines several fundamental truths associated with war in the third dimension; e.g., Principles of War and Tenets of Air and Space Power. In addition, you will be inculcated into the Air Force Core Values, with the use of operational examples and will conduct writing and briefing assignments to meet Air Force communication skills requirements. Course Objectives: 1. Know the key terms and definitions used to describe air and space power. 2. Know the events, leaders, and technical developments that surrounded the evolution and employment of USAF air and space power. 3. Know the Air Force “Core Values” and identify examples of their use throughout the evolution of USAF air and space power. 4. Recognize some of the important aircraft of the U.S. Air Force and of aviation history. 5. Demonstrate basic verbal and written communication skills. Texts / Reading Assignments: I strongly recommend you read the assigned selections before the lecture. There may be ‘pop-quiz’ or activities that will require you to be familiar with the information. A Concise History of the U.S. Air Force Air Force Doctrine Document 1: Air Force Basic Doctrine, Organization, and Command AFH 33-337 “The Tongue and Quill” Classroom Rules of Engagement for Air Force Cadets 1. Attendance: Cadets must attend at least 80 percent of scheduled class sessions to achieve a passing grade. However, you should strive to attend ALL classes as doing the minimum necessary is not encouraged either in AFROTC or in the operational Air Force. For those ‘academic only’ students, while you do not have a minimum attendance requirement, keep in mind that your grade is based partly on participation (and thus attendance). 2. Food and Drink: Food and drinks are allowed during normal class times so long as they do not become a distraction. Please refrain from eating and drinking during any presentations by fellow classmates. I also expect everyone to be responsible and clean up after him or herself. 3. Military protocol: Cadets must observe military customs and courtesies at all times. Call the room to attention when the instructor (or military officer senior to your instructor) enters or leaves the room. If
