Rise of the –Isms Test
Because we are starting a new semester, and because this unit is so dense with both big ideas and details, I wanted to provide you with a study guide that also included reminders and tips for how to study and prepare.
Short Answer Questions are sometimes based on a quote or document and sometimes based on main ideas from the unit. When approaching a Short Answer Question first, make sure you read and understand the question and know the big ideas the question is getting at. Next, things of specific examples that can be used as evidence to answer what the question is asking. Make sure you explain those details completely in answer to the question.
MC and SAQ Prep:
Use KEY TERMS, HW AND CLASS WORK questions to review details of the unit. If information is not covered by a key term, it may be covered by a HW question or a class assignment! Study Tip: Connect key terms and HW details to the BIG picture.
Ex: We know the Corn Laws were English: did they push England TOWARD or away from reform?
Ex: We know the Irish famine was bad and was caused by potato blight, but what larger implications did it have on the politics of the 1840s? Think to yourself : 1) Do I understand what this term/HW question is/means? HOW does this term connect to the major events/ideas of the unit and the guiding questions? For this unit –think of what –Ism you connect the person or event to. Ideologies
