The midterm counts for 15% of your
final grade (51 points for IDs, 50 for essay).
See Rampolla, Pocket Guide, 36-38 (6th ed., §3c-2) for some
advice on answering ID & essay questions.
- Identify and define the significance (15-20 minutes total, 3
@ 17 points each)
On the midterm you will be given six of the following terms, from which
you will select three. After identifying who, what, where & when (that
is, you must situate the term in a period and region of world history),
take special care to EXPLAIN WHY THE TERM IS SIGNIFICANT in the context
of world history. Ask yourself: Would history have taken a different course
without this event or person? How is this term an example of some important
principle that played a role in the course of history? Then write down
the reason(s) WHY to conclude your answer to the ID.
Note: the textbook page numbers are for guidance only.
For full credit an answer may have to include information from the lectures
and course reader, as well as your original thought.
