Hello, here is the things that you need to be familiar with.And I will be sending the questions by taking a photo of it need you to be fast and know the subject EXAM FORMAT (you receive the questions in this order):SHORT ESSAYS (2 @ 20 points each)You will have two groups of short essays with 8 choices in each group (2 per major theme). Pick ONE from each group (so by the time you finish the short essay section, you will have written TWO short essays)
Short essays are in the form of terms, names, places, or events (such as Charter of 1606, Stamp Act, Battle of Saratoga, etc.)
For each of your choices, write a short essay (1-2 full, robust paragraphs. A paragraph is defined as at least 5 sentences) that defines the term in as much detail as you can from lectures, assigned readings, films, and discussions and provide its significance for this course.
Short essays that are vague or overly brief cannot earn more than half credit (10 points out of 20). Those that have sufficient detail, but fail to address significance cannot earn more than 70% of the credit (14 points out of 20).
LONG ESSAY (1 @ 40 points)You will have one group of 4 long essay choices (1 per major theme). Pick ONE from the group and write roughly 3-5 full, robust paragraphs (again, a paragraph is defined as at least 5 sentences), including as much detail as you can remember and addressing all parts of the question.
If you discover that information from a short essay that you already wrote is useful in answering the long essay question, you are allowed to “double dip” and count your short essay towards your long essay. For example, if you wrote on Common Sense for your short essay and then you select a long essay about the chain of events that led to declaring independence, information on Common Sense in that long essay would be appropriate and necessary. Rather than having to write about Common Sense all over again (you’ve already done it once and you don’t really have time to rehash it all over again), instead, when you get to the part of your long essay when you would start talking about Common Sense, type “please see my short essay on Common Sense” and then move along to the rest of your essay. This allows us to mentally copy and paste your short essay into your long essay as we grade. Keep in mind that doing this means that the quality of your short essay impacts the quality of your long essay. If you have a problematic short essay that you reference in your long essay, that therefore makes your long essay problematic. Before you “double dip” in this manner, you want to make sure you’re confident in your short essay.
Long essays that are vague, overly brief, and/or focus on only a small part of the whole question cannot earn more than half credit (20 points out of 40).
MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS (30 @ 1.5 points each)These come from the quizzes (both chapter and lecture) as well as new questions from breakout readings. Select the best answer (or answers if the question tells you to “select all that apply,” indicating that more than one of the choices could be correct).
EXTRA CREDIT QUESTIONS (5 @ 1 point each). These are short, fill in the blank-type questions based on lectures to see if you were paying attention.
