Air Force Aerospace Studies 202 (Leadership 202): The Evolution of U. S. Air & Space Power 2 (1837) Capt Scott Paeth Assistant Professor of Aerospace Studies, Air Force ROTC Detachment 925 608-262-3440; Spring 2014; Friday, 0850 – 0940; McCutchen Hall, 4 th Floor, East Classroom 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 relevant lecture. There may be ‘pop-quiz’ or group activities that will require you to be familiar with some of the information. A Concise History of the United States Air Force (2013)* The Tongue and Quill (AFH 33-337)* * Accessable thorugh website. 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 certainly 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 hence 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 however during any presentations by fellow classmates. I also expect everyone to be responsible and clean up after themselves. 3. Military protocol: Cadets - observe military customs and courtesies at all times. Call the room to attention when the instructor (or a military officer senior to your instructor) enters or leaves the room. If an officer senior to your instructor enters the room during a lecture from your instructor, do not call the room to attention. Non-Cadets – are not required to come to attention, but are asked to stand along with their classmates for uniformity.

4. Uniform: Uniform wear is optional for each class period (but dress will be according to the Det 925 Commander’s discression). When giving a formal presentation (briefing) however, cadets will be required to wear their formal blues uniform. 5. Cell phones: Cell phones will not be allowed in the classroom. There will be a designated place for you to set them while in class. This is to simulate a real military briefing environment. Assignments: Air Force cadets: Each AS200 will write a one to two-page memo revising or reflecting his or her goals for the field training and the first semester as a POC. Additionally, each cadet will write a minimum of one page background paper that discusses your briefing topic (see below). For AS200s, each assignment is worth 5 points, and for AS100s the background paper will be worth 10 points by itself. Use Tongue & Quill for reference. Academic only students: Each will write a two to three-page paper (double-spaced) on an Airpower topic approved by the instructor. Your proposed topic must fall within the historical period we discuss in class. The topic of your paper will also serve as the subject of your briefing. All students: Plan for a briefing of 5 - 8 minutes to further study a topic we touch on this semester. You will have opportunity to earn the following points: Exam #1 Exam #2 (non-cumulative) Airpower project Paper(s) (10 pts) Presentation (10 pts) Classroom Participation 30 points 30 points 20 points 20 points Grading. Based on 100 total points, I will assign letter grades as follows: UW-Madison/Edgewood/MATC UW-Whitewater/MBBC A 100 – 93 A 100-93 C- 72-70* AB 92 – 88 A- 92-90 D+ 69-66 B 87 – 83 B+ 89-87 D 65-63 BC 82 – 78 B 86-83 D- 62-60** C 77 – 70* B- 82-80 F 59-0 D 69 – 60** C+ 79-77 F 59 – 0 C 76-73 *Minimum passing grade for Cadets ** Minimum passing grade for academic only students Attachments: 1.
