DHE 270: Midterm Study Guide The study guide is not intended to be used as a “check list”. You will be more successful on your final exam if you use the study guide as intended. When you study vocabulary , understand the use of the vocabulary in the context that you are able to answer questions which include the term. If you do not understand the term, you will not be able to understand the question. When you learn a term, you should be able to take that term into an application, (critical thinking). Readings (page numbered assignments) should be re-read. Ask yourself, “what is the message?” Some of the following questions/statements are from lectures and some are from your chapter reading assignments. The study questions are prompting you to review chapter readings , lecture notes and any Bb assigned readings . When you review, you will be reading for information that will help you to answer the study questions. There will also be questions on the exam about the student presentations (final exam) and video’s. If you were in class, it is likely that you will able to reason through the question to find the correct answer. Please note: Many of the topics that we discuss in DHE 270 are familiar. As a result, students have told me after the exam, that they assumed that they knew the material and made the false assumption that they did not need to study. More times than not, this false assumption leads to low exam scores. There are 50 questions on this exam and each question is worth 2 points. To get an A- to an A, you should not miss more than 5 questions. You should give yourself plenty of time to study for the exam. I recommend 6 to 8 hours, assuming you have attended classes and kept current with reading assignments. UNDERSTAND definitions well enough to either recognize a definition or be able to apply the definition in a statement as well as to recognize examples. Social construction – social “conditioning” what we believe to know from what iwe have learned now we grow up and what we see/ hear is what we’ll think Oppression – institutionalized dominance of one part of humanity by another privilege- something systematically allowed for someone and denied to others based on membership in a social category. hegemony-
