    Abstract:
    The outline for the second module in An Introduction to Digital Humanities, a course I taught annually at the College of Wooster between 2017 and 2022. The assignments provide a scaffolded approach to introducing students to the scripting language, python. Students begin to explore the logic of programming through tracery, a scripting language for that processes JSON and that is the basis for Cheap Bots, Done Quick (CBDQ). We then create the same bots using python. Through practice, students come to understand the importance of syntax and they develop a "reading knowledge" of python; programming proficiency is not the goal.
    Notes:
    I am submitting this file as a collection of materials related to the course that includes a syllabus, a final portfolio assignment sheet, two "lab series" modules, and a low-barrier tools project assignment. All are submitted as .doc or .docx files so that users can edit them for their own uses.
