I didnt know people back then think it is weak like us.I thought pre-war people still have hope that LON would actually be great

I guess every knew war was pretty much unavoidable.

It started failing in the early 30s, with Musso gassing Ethiopians and the Japs invading China.
>>
>>508641
Yeah. That, and Hitler had reoccupied the Rhineland earlier in March of '35, a blatant contravention of Versailles. Shit was just falling apart and it was too hard to ignore.
>>
>>506755

>WWI referred to simply as "the world war"

Damn that's fucking cool
>>
Wow history testing back then sure focused on dumb memorization
>>
Definitely a long test if all of that will be on it, but if it's only basis for final review the professor might only put a random amount on the test and omit other questions.

The questions themselves don't seem too difficult honestly.
>>
>>509836
Well, it is meant to test things indicative of a deep knowledge of the subject… but is way too amenable to memorisation games.
>>
>>508620
I think they were talking about the wars in Eastern Europe in 1918-1924.
>>
>>506718
Honestly most of these I could do except for the fucking maps. There's no way I could ever draw a map of Europe or Africa at those times with any semblance of accuracy.
>>
>>506718
>Maps to be Memorized. You will be asked to draw one or more of these:

>>506703
So, what level of education do you think this is from specifically? and how would it differ to modern test prep sheets at the same level?
>>
>>509963
It says at the top of the sheet: 4b.

It is a second semester upper level course for history majors in the US system.

"Tests" are considered an inappropriate form of assessment in current history pedagogy.

Am I alone in thinking that's a little bit useless?

It is 1935. Printing is the only duplication technology.

>>510055

Still, though. They are history students, it's not like you'd expect them not to have access to texts and whatnot.

It also seems (though I'll admit this is a separate concern) like the actual testing of drawing a map is a poor way to capture knowledge of the territories. I'm shit at drawing. I couldn't draw you a car to save my life, but I know what they look like. You know?
>>
>>510067
So back in the Day history BAs were meant to become staff officers, government administrators, etc.

Sure, drawing maps is indicative of male spatial awareness more than anything else, but in part, this test is aimed to determine who can get the most heroin into chinese veins.

I suppose I wasn't really thinking of the practical applications of the degree, fair enough.

A student from the 30s who is capable of understanding all the course material here >>510005 would be denied scholarships for being white and male and possibly failed for not taking the mandatory diversity class.

At the same time an opinion piece of second wave feminism can be passed off as a doctoral thesis.

This is the world we live in, other countries like China and Japan are strictly meritocratic and do not drop standards for women and women do fine, but in the west standards have been dropped and it has been done to cater to women and brown people.

for rote learning and an inability to apply critically theory and historiography.

question 6 is the most curious one to me

>>510145
Humanities don't have much benefit for 99% of students

Holy crap this is cool. Hey OP, could you post more photos please or write down the questions of the quiz or something like that?

I loved this post.
>>
>>510145
>rote learning makes you uncreative
just a meme, about half of those questions require original inferences and a deep understanding of the subject matter (achieved in part due to the memorization, an activity which increases neuroplasticity)

>critically theory and historiography
how to frame something in 1 rather dubious normative perspective is not relevant for most things
>>
>>510372
>about half of those questions require original inferences

No, they don't. Those "inferences" are the content of the text book.

>how to frame something in 1
A yup.
>>
>>510229
I can post more, but that's all for the test and notes. The book is pretty cool, and written in a romantic and pompous style.

Final Exam Question - History 101 - Semester I 2016

Trigger Warnings: structuralism, post-structuralism, rape culture

True/False: "The move from a structuralist account in which capital is understood to structure social relations in relatively homologous ways to a view of hegemony in which power relations are subject to repetition, convergence, and rearticulation brought the question of temporality into the thinking of structure, and marked a shift from a form of Althusserian theory that takes structural totalities as theoretical objects to one in which the insights into the contingent possibility of structure inaugurate a renewed conception of hegemony as bound up with the contingent sites and strategies of the rearticulation of power." (10 marks)
>>
I always think it's so interesting (in a dark way) to see WW1 referred to as "the world war". They don't know that in just a few short years they'll have to start numbering them instead.

>giving students the answers to the exam before they sit them

This explains so much.

>>511055
Im not sure anymore whether or not this kind of shit is actuaply gonna happen in the US, or if its all just bullshit memes. Wont happen here anytime soon.

This is pretty nice. You should upload it somewhere else so people can view it after the thread's been 404'd.

Can I skip the question if it triggers me and receive the marks anyway?

If not I'm reporting this to the University LGBTQIYMCA group and having your shitlord life DESTROYED

that's a lie, c'mon. They were more formal to our perspective but how many international or technology related terms do you know at this moment? Don't romanticize the past Anon, recognize the good parts for what they were but most of life is probably better now.

Probably not. Considering especially literacy rates total and so on.

Memorization of old maps isn't as important as understanding the many concepts and dynamics of history

Its imoortant to know what states exist and what their geographical location is, but i agree that knowing a precise map is a bit much

>fascism in russia
I mean what the hell
>>
>>516510

It's kind of ambiguous - there's at least one typo. "Fascism and Communism as it exist in Russia" might mean "Fascism and Communism as they exist in Russia" or "Fascism, and Communism (as it exists in Russia)" - ie, as distinct from Communism as it exists in other places or merely in theory.

I'd be inclined to favour the latter interpretation, simply because otherwise the question is just weird. There was already Italy, if nothing else.
>>
>>516559
It must be the latter indeed, as fascism never existed in Russia at all. Fascism is a typical italian product. Even Russian right-wing nationalism was not like fascism, and more like tsarist nostalgia
>>
>>516510

Americans don't use the Oxford comma
>>
>>516792
Or they might be comparing the progressive elements of the white reaction to Horthy and D'Annunzio
