Course grades will reflect performance on a mid-term exam, a paper, and a final exam. The weighting of these instruments is as follows:

  Mid-Term Exam I: 30%
Mid-Term Exam II: 30%
Final Exam: 40%


Mid-term Exams

  The first mid-term exam will cover material from the first day of the course through February 14. The second mid-term exam will cover material from February 21 through March 28. The structure for both exams is as follows:

 


• an "ID-SIG" section, where you will identify a particular term, person, concept, or event, and comment briefly on its significance; and
• an essay section, for which you will have a choice of essays on which to write.

A study guide for the first mid-term is available via this link: Mid-term I Study Guide.

A study guide for the second mid-term is available via this link: Mid-term II Study Guide.

Final Exam

 

The final exam will focus primarily on material from April 4 through May 2, but also will ask you to draw on material from the first two-thirds of the course. Its structure will resemble that of the two mid-terms.

A study guide for the final exam is available via this link: Final Exam Study Guide.

 
• an "ID-SIG" section, where you will identify a particular term, person, concept, or event; and
• an essay section, in which you will write two essays. One of these essays will involve material covered only during the last third of the course. The other will be comprehensive and will ask you to synthesize themes and concepts covered throughout the semester.
