MDSA01 Midterm Study Guide, page 1MDSA01 Midterm Study Guide (Full – Chapters 1-6)Here is a full list of terms, concepts, theories, and theorists with which you should be familiar. Items marked “Independent/Critical Thinking” are potential options or foundations for short-to-medium length essay questions (1-2 paragraphs, generally) – you can expect 2-3 such questions on the exam. The remainder of the exam will be multiple choice, true/false, matching, and similar types of questions.As you’ll see in the guide, there is a mixture of textbook content, supplemental required readings, and my own engagement with/expansion upon these in my lectures, ideally designed tohelp encourage your own reflection on key issues for each school of thought. For example, not every single term from the textbook appears here, as we’re honing in on some key elements, though I may ask questions that bridge or connect ideas from the textbook, scholarship (the required readings), and lectures. That said, if a term or specific concept isn’t in the study guide (especially re: the textbook key terms and definitions), you can assume it will notbe on the exam.Note that there will be several versions of the exam, and each version will ask different questions, or similar questions from different perspectives, to maintain the integrity of the exam. The exam will be open book and open note and will take place from 11am-1pm on Tuesday, June 2 (during scheduled class time).
