World History 1 Finals Study Guide

Below are listed the major topics of study we have covered Semester 1. Under each topic, you find listed more specifics about that topic. I will be drawings all questions for the final from these topics and subtopics. To prepare for the final, I highly recommend that you review your participation packets, past assignments related to these topics, review PowerPoint notes in your journal, and that you create a written study guide for yourself that includes the information for the topics and questions below. We will have 1 full day of in class review. I expect that you come prepared to these review sessions having already gone over the study guide. Remember that your final is worth 10% of your semester grade. It will take multiple hours to prepare for. Make sure you dedicate enough time to each of your finals preparations.
