STUDY GUIDE FOR HST 2202 FINAL EXAM Fall 2020 The following is the schedule for taking the final exam for HST 2202 in the Fall semester of 2020. Sec 01 (8AM-8:50AM class ) - DECEMBER 7, 7AM-8:50 AM (online on Blackboard) Sec 03(9AM-9:50AM class ) - DECEMBER 9, 9AM-10:50AM (online on Blackboard) Sec 05(11AM-11:50AM class) - DECEMBER 9, 11AM-12:50PM (online on Blackboard) The final will be available for you to take on Blackboard ONLY during the periods shown in the schedule. If you are a DRC registered student, you will have your designated accommodation. All technical difficulties (wi-fi or internet down, link does not appear, etc. etc.) concerning connection to the test on Blackboard are the student’s to solve. The only exception will be a documented problem on CPP’s end with the university website. The 65 test questions will be mostly multiple-choice with some True/False. A few will be multiple-answer questions, meaning more than one answer is the correct answer; to get credit you must choose all the right answers to these questions. A WARNING: This exam is basically only a generalized review of the work we have done. You are free to consult your notes, texts, the course powerpoints, and pretty much whatever you like in formulating a response as you take the exam. Still, for reasons I do not understand, many students really screw this exam up. So, be sure you aren’t casual about it. Be sure to prepare, just as you would for any other exam. HERE is a SAMPLE QUESTION based on materials from lecture. Choose the BEST answer: Quentin Roosevelt was a) Franklin D. Roosevelt’s son who led a regiment in the D-Day assault on Normandy. His success in driving back a German armored battalion became a symbol of the US defeat of Germany during World War I. b) A fighter pilot shot down and taken prisoner during the Vietnam War. His experience being tortured at the prison known as the Hanoi Hilton became symbolic of the ultimate powerlessness of the American military against the North Vietnamese. c) A fighter pilot whose death in combat during World War I and its effect on his father, Theodore Roosevelt, was a metaphor for the death of American progressivism and idealism in the wake of World War I. d) None of the above. (The correct answer is “c.”)
