Final Exam Study Tips
- General Final Exam information. The final
will have the same format as the midterm:
- 3 IDs chosen from 9 taken from this list of 24 IDs.
Note that the definitions on this sheet in general DO NOT include
the significance of the terms! You may wish to use the metacollege.com web site
bulletin board to exchange views with other students about
why these terms are important. A fact sheet will NOT be available.
- One source interpretation, taken from textbook pages: 978,
1003, 1026, 1058. See the overlay for lecture 20
for tips on what to look for. Think about why the textbook authors
selected those particular primary documents, from all of the many
possibilities, for inclusion in the textbook. (20 minutes)
- a comprehensive essay question. It will have something to
do with imperialism as a phenomenon of the (second half of the)
19th century, and decolonization as a phenomenon of the 20th century.
Be sure to read textbook chapters 33 and 37 carefully. My suggestion
for studying is to draw up a "pie chart" for each of
those phenomena, using EIE(L)IO: Economy, International, Elites,
Leadership, Ideology, Opposition as the six slices. As you review
the textbook and your notes, fill in each "slice" with
examples. Think about what has changed between the two centuries
that makes decolonization possible. (one hour)
- FINAL EXAM INFO UPDATES.
Any final updates will be posted by 5pm Sunday. I will also check
the metacollege web site
bulletin board and answer open questions at that time.
The exam itself is on Monday, 6/12, from 8:30 to 10:30
(2 hours only).
- STUDY TIP: the textbook has its own website,
with chapter outlines, glossary, self-test, interactive maps,
etc.--for each chapter (go directly to the chapters: 23,
