INDV 101 - Fall 2007 - Professor Peterson First Essay Exam Study Questions, for Exam on 24 September 2007 Remember to bring large "blue books" to class (available at book stores). Be there on time so we can get started immediately. During the exam, make sure to pace yourself, i.e., keep track of time, and make sure that you write *something* for every question! (Recommendation: Plan to spend no more than 10-15 minutes on identifications, and then about 15-20 minutes each on essays.) No notes or extra pieces of paper will be permitted during the exam.

Points: 20 total (5 points for each) When you arrive in class, we will tell you which FOUR of the following terms you must write out the meaning of for Part I of the exam. The learning objective is for you to understand the terms accurately and to incorporate them into your long-term memory so that you can *use* them in thinking, talking and writing more generally. You will be graded on how well you convey such comprehension (including all aspects of the definition), but must do so succinctly given the time constraints of the exam. Therefore, one studying strategy is to memorize the identifications provided here, and then reproduce from memory the ones we ask you for at exam time--but make sure that you *understand* what you are memorizing, or it is a pointless exercise! Classism is a system of beliefs and practices that privilege the wealthy at the expense of the oppression of the poor. Critical thinking identifies assumptions, recognizes standpoints, seeks alternative ways of thinking, and encourages skeptical, reflective analysis. Essentialism refers to the belief that human behavior is not socially constructed but 'natural,' predetermined by genetic, biological, or physiological mechanisms and therefore not open to change. Heterosexism is the system of beliefs and practices that insist on heterosexuality as the only ‘normal’ and acceptable expression of intimacy, sexuality and family life. Homophobia
