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.
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.
Why have education standards dropped? To cater to women and brown people?
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?
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.
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.
>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
>Those "inferences" are the content of the text book.
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)
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.
because OP is the first history student to study since 1935.
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.
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
