ABOUT THE FINAL
The final exam will consist
of definitions, short answers, and medium-length essay questions. It will ask you to discuss, integrate, and
compare materials from throughout the class, but will emphasize those studied
after the midterm.
Two medium-length essay questions will together count for 120 points on the final exam, which is worth a total of 250. For the final, I will randomly chose two of the four questions posted on the Assignments Page, word for word. Thus, if you have studied and prepared thorough answers to all five questions, this section should go very well.
that you will have seen the questions in advance, I will expect a high level of
precision, detail, and writing quality -- including the frequent use of
appropriate terms and thorough attention to dates, practices, texts, etc.
