Western Civilization II Professor Knight Fall 2004 Final Exam Review Sheet. The final exam will consist of four sections, all of which will already be familiar to you from the two previous exams. Two of the four sections (chronology and essays) will be cumulative, encompassing all the material covered since the beginning of the semester. The remaining two sections (identifications and short answers) will focus on materials covered since the last exam– the period from World War I to the present day (chapters 25 to chapter 29 in Spielvogel). If you like to receive your grade for the exam and for the semester feel free to send me an inquiry via e-mail any time after January 1. DON’T FORGET TO BRING BLUE BOOKS The Exam time is: April 30, Period 2 (10:45-12:25) in our regular classroom Sections of the Exam: I. Chronology. (10 points) This part will be cumulative. The format will be somewhat different than the previous chronology. You will be given a list of major periods and topics (i.e. French Revolution, World War II, Age of Imperialism, etc.) marked with letters and list of specific events with two blank columns. Your task is twofold: first, place the specific events within one of the major periods or topics by writing the letter denoting the period or topic in the column next to the event. Second, number the events in chronological order. EXAMPLE: A. The Enlightenment B. The French Revolution C. World War I Period Order ____ ____Voltaire writes Candide ____ ____The Jacobin Terror ____ ____Sinking of the Lusitania II. Identifications. This section should be quite familiar to you from the previous exams. As always you should try to provide as precise an identification as possible addressing the basic questions: Who? What? Where? And When? as well as the eternal “So What?” (i.e. significance). Remember to always write something. All of the terms for identification will be taken from the lecture outlines posted on the web site and will have been discussed in some detail both in class and in the textbook. This section will only include materials covered since the last exam. III. Short Answers. I will give you a set of factual questions focusing on specific historical events or processes. You should be able to answer these questions in three sentences or less. Here are some examples. 1) What were some of Hitler’s first steps after taking power in 1933? 2) What were Germany’s military objectives at the outset of World War I? All of these questions will concern the material covered since the last exam. IV. Essay questions. You will be three questions of which you will choose two to write on. Your essays will be graded on the basis of the strength of your argument and the amount and accuracy of the factual evidence with which you support your point of view. GOOD LUCK!
