Study Guide for American Family, Spring 2011, with Dr. Maria Schmeeckle Exam 2 consists of 50 multiple choice questions (2 points each). There is one bonus question. There are items from class presentations from 2/8 up through 3/15. As for readings, you’ll need to study Obama’s Dreams from my Father book up to page 295 (end of Chapter 14). 8 exam items have been modified from student-submitted questions. The remaining questions have been written by Maria and the teaching assistants. General advice To do well, you will need to have a strong familiarity with the book (beyond what was reinforced in class) as well as class presentations from each class meeting. You need to be able to assess carefully all the possible answers to the multiple choice questions, recognizing when an answer is wrong so you can eliminate it and identify the correct answer. Material Covered and additional tips for each: Presentation on the early women’s movement ~ song “Remember the Ladies” and historical artifacts that inspired it (a link to this song is posted in Blackboard) ~ key early activists, areas of activism, successes, pace of progress (what did the early activists live or not live to see) Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Susan B. Anthony was single and in the public. Elizabeth Cady Stanton was married and had children. She founded the Women’s Rights Convention in 1848. She also wrote the Declaration of Sentiments, which ; Stated the problems that should be solved for women; followed the format of the Declaration of Independent. Orphan Trains video ~ social context that led Charles Loring Brace to start the program: began in 1850's, Charles Loring Brace talked to children on the streets that were poor and hustling for money. ~how did the Orphan Trains process work? Children was given away from there parents to the Children Aid Society; They took them on trains for 3 days without stopping to the country so they could find work. ~monitoring of placements by The Children’s Aid Society: how extensive? they had a commitee to make sure they were ok. If the children didn't like it there they could come back. But most of the adoptive parents that were abusive made some children lie. The monitoring wasn't inforced and some children were stuck in abuse.

    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.
