Final Exam Prep 2012

Assignment. Review your assigned readings (the numbers in the table below indicate an item in the numbered list). Identify 4-6 important terms, concepts, ideas found in the reading (the number can vary but you should have about 16-25 all told from your four readings). For each one, identify the passages in which the author explains or defines it (provide the quote and the appropriate reference). Then provide explanation, example, etc. to show (1) that you understand the concept, (2) so that your classmate can use your work to study for an exam. This will probably include both an explanation and locating the concept in the context of this course. Use this format:

TERM (Greer 1967)

Greer says TERM is "donec vitae urna non augue vulputate semper. Maecenas ut urna nec quam porta dignissim eu nec orci" (1967:34.5). Later she notes that "praesent auctor nibh ac nisl rhoncus vitae convallis felis egestas" (1967:45.8).

In other words:Donec vitae urna non augue vulputate semper. Maecenas ut urna nec quam porta dignissim eu nec orci. Praesent auctor nibh ac nisl rhoncus vitae convallis felis egestas. In ac nunc id tortor fermentum dignissim vitae vitae mauris. Praesent sed sem at neque scelerisque consequat a sit amet tellus. Sed tempor gravida luctus. Quisque et scelerisque ipsum.

Relevance and context in this course: Praesent sed metus tellus. Maecenas lacinia lacinia pulvinar. Nunc sed aliquam mi. Pellentesque egestas imperdiet augue, ac consequat turpis suscipit vitae. Aliquam eget dolor nec neque fringilla pellentesque non at elit. Duis bibendum molestie egestas. Integer rutrum, purus id sollicitudin euismod, mauris justo faucibus neque, id ultrices odio nulla a risus. Pellentesque in quam vel sem faucibus euismod sit amet vel metus. Vivamus condimentum fermentum auctor.

Vestibulum vehicula, leo sit amet ornare porttitor, urna turpis commodo tortor, a suscipit dolor diam eu erat. Fusce condimentum sem et urna tempus sodales. Sed vitae nunc nisi. Sed fringilla velit ac dui lacinia fringilla. Morbi bibendum facilisis sem nec varius. Nam et nisl neque, sit amet consequat turpis.
