Short Answer: The short answer portion of your test is designed to test your historical knowledge. Please respond briefly to each of the following questions. Your answers should include historical context and significance. Write a cohesive paragraph using complete sentences to express a complete idea. I recommend that short answers be at least 5 sentences in length, but they can be longer if necessary. All responses must be entirely in your own words–no quotations. If you refer to any source, including your textbook or the class materials, please include a citation. Worth 10 points each.
Essay Answer: The essay portion of the test is designed to not only test your historical knowledge but also your critical thinking skills. Unlike the short answer question, the essay will not focus on one historical idea but instead, ask you to analyze a historical theme and/or era. Each of your essay questions should be at least 250 words and should fully address all aspects of the question. All responses must be entirely in your own words–no quotations. If you refer to any source, including your textbook or the class materials, please include a citation. Worth 25 points each.
