Unformatted text preview: Bickham HIST 105 Study Guide for Test #1 Coverage The test will cover all lectures to Wednesday, September 27 and all discussion readings through Friday, September 29 (this means that the Equiano discussion will be covered by the test). The exam will be worth 100 points (10% of the course grade). Format The test will consist of roughly 25 multiple choice, true/false, and short answer questions. Roughly half of these questions will be based on the discussion readings, and half will come from the lectures. There will also be two essay questions from which you will choose one to answer. The essay questions will be based largely on the lectures, but a thorough understanding of the reading will enhance your answer. Your answer should be a thorough response to all of the question, be formatted as a direct response to the question (i.e. do not write down randomly everything you know about the topic), and be substantial in length. You will not need to bring anything except a bluebook and writing utensils, preferably black or blue ink pens. If you have any questions First, thoroughly check your readings and notes. If you have questions after that see any of the teaching assistants or Dr. Bickham during their special office hours for the exam, which are listed below: Bickham Monday, 12:30-2pm History/Glasscock Building, room 207A Beauchamp MW, 10:30-11:30am 862-6820 History/Glasscock Building basement Godin Thurs., 9:30-11:30am 862-6776 History/Glasscock Building basement Peatman Thurs., 1:45-3:45pm 862-6818 History/Glasscock Building basement Mallet Friday, 1-3pm 862-6819 History/Glasscock Building basement Do not send emails with lists of questions, as these are most appropriately dealt with in a face-to- face meeting during office hours. If you have a yes/no type question, that it fine to email, but remember that the TAs and Dr. Bickham may take up to 48 hours in responding to emails (as noted in the syllabus)so manage your time accordingly. Readings 1 Be familiar with all of the readings. There will not be specific question on the American Promise textbook, but it will provide you the essential background for the other readings and lectures. It is also a useful resource for identifying terms, concepts and people that are listed below but may not have received a great deal of attention in your notes. You should expect questions on all of the reading assignments pertaining to the discussions that are listed on your syllabus. Many of the items below overlap with the readings, but to be thoroughly prepared see the syllabuss suggestions on what to include from in your notes. Chronology You will not be asked specific questions about dates, i.e. On what day was Jamestown founded?; however, you should a reasonably good understanding of the chronology in which the events below happened and the people connected to them lived.
