HILD 7C Midterm Exam Study Guide The midterm is an in-class, closed-book exam scheduled for Thursday, May 5. There will be no make-up exams. The exam will consist of two essays and four identifications. The following sample essay questions and identification terms are designed to help you prepare for the midterm. Sample Essay Questions: In all essays you are expected to include a main argument that addresses the question and support your argument with evidence from class lectures, readings, handouts, films, and discussions. 1.) Imagine you are at a dinner party. Three of your friends begin a discussion about the history of Mexican American identity between 1821 and 1945. One of your friends insists that 1848 was the most important turning point in the development of Mexican American identity. Another argues it was 1910 and still another claims it was 1943. As the conversation gains intensity, they soon ask for your opinion. Do you believe 1848, 1910, or 1943 was the most important turning point in the development of Mexican American identity? Why? As you make your case, be sure to consider the following questions: What were the primary patterns of mobility, mobilization, and political economy that shaped Mexican American identity leading up to and after your chosen year?; Why do you think your chosen year was more important than the other two?; How you would describe the state of Mexican American identity (strong, weak, in formation, or something else) during your chosen year?

    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.
