The specific and detailed questions of the exam will cover all material since the last test, from the “High Middle Ages” to the Renaissance (Spielvogel, chapters 9-12). The major essay question will be comprehensive, covering the work of the whole course. Format: The exam will have four parts: 1. Short Answer Questions (SQs). You will describe (who/what, when, where) and explain the historical significance of six items. You will have a choice. (30 points). 2. Identifications: You will be asked to provide two facts about five items taken from the SQ items on the webpage. You will have a choice. (10 points) 3. Essay: You will be asked to write an essay on the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. (30 points) 4. Essay: You will be asked to write an essay that summarizes the whole course. (30 points) Below are some examples of the types of essay questions we may ask on the exam. When studying for this exam you should review the material from the entire course, but focus primarily on the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Remember that we want to see how carefully you have read the primary sources as well as Spielvogel and Herlihy. 1. Throughout time, several men and women have stepped forward to leave their mark, whether good or bad, on history. Citing examples, state why these individuals are still being studied today. Use examples from four distinct time periods and/or positions in society. 2. Discuss how 2 or more cultures use stories. Select some characteristic examples and explain their relevance to the culture that produced them. 3. Discuss how conflicts have been handled in different eras from the ancient Near East through the Renaissance. 4. Who would you consider to be the most influential person in the history we have thus far studied? Discuss their influence on their own era and later periods. 5. Pick one area of the western world and discuss the changes in people/land/culture/boundaries/etc. that occurred there from antiquity through the Middle Ages. 6. Explain how the views of various cultures on religion, politics, and economics have converged, overlapped, or differed and how these have been pulled together to influence each other. 7. Why are the sources we have read some of the most important documents in history? Select some and discuss how each reflects its historical context. Why must we still read them? How have they influenced each other? 8. A key theme for this class has been “The present creates the past.” What does this mean in relationship to the stories, books, poems, etc. that we have studied?
