Midterm Review Guide, Anth 310, Fall 2016 (Prof von Mayrhauser's sections) Overview 1. The midterm will be held in Week 8. If your Anth 310 sections meets Tu/Thu, your midterm will be held on Thursday, Oct. 20; and if it meets Friday, your midterm will be held on Friday, Oct. 21. 2. The midterm will be a combination of fill-in, matching, multiple choice, short answer and short essay. 3. The midterm covers Chapters 1-6 in the Ahearn text as well as the related lectures/films that you have viewed during our in-class discussions of these chapters. 4. There are two parts to the test: Part A and Part B. 5. The points for Part A will add up to 10 and the points for Part B will add up to 90. If you do not hand in Part A, you will get no higher than a 90 (A-). Partial points are possible in either part. 6. Part A is a short 2-3 paragraph essay that you can write at home (handrwritten or typed is fine) and bring in on the day of the midterm, or write there if you forget to do so at home. Part A's writing prompt options are listed below. I will grade Part A holistically based on evidence I see of you having done the readings, attended class, understood the material presented, and made the effort to express yourself clearly. 7. Part B is the main part of the test and you will take this in class. It has 40 questions and you will have 70 minutes to complete them. Most of the questions have concrete answers that you can find in text and lecture notes and will be graded according to the accuracy of your answer. There are a few questions that ask for your opinion and these are graded based on evidence that you have done the reading/attended lecture/reflected on the material. 8. Questions will vary in number of points and I will indicate these points on the midterm. A tentative/likely guide to the points is listed below in the midterm review section of this guide, but I stress that these are just tentative and subject to slight change. NOTE: this part to be filled in by Thursday, Oct 6 9. For Part B of the midterm, which you will take in class, you can use either pencil or pen and you and write directly onto the test. 10. You can use the specifics below for Part A and B to review for the test. What I have done is provide you with the likely (but not guaranteed) starred concepts and examples of the kinds of questions that I could ask about them, in the order that we encountered them. The only out of order question is the very last one that links up the film that we saw in conjunction for Chapter 3, I Learn America, with both Chapters 6 and 3. You can find that film via Oviatt Library (just put the title in OneSearch and then click on the Books/Media tab to find it. It should be the first item. 11. I am giving you this guide more than two weeks before the test and I suggest that you work through it before the formal review periods for the midterm, so that you can get any questions you have, answered at that time. The review for the midterm will take place at the following times: Tuesday Oct 18 for my Anth 310 Tu/Thu section, and the second half of class on Friday, Oct 14 for my Anth 310 Fri section.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
