Should you want to come speak with me about the final exam, the course more generally, or anything else, I'll be holding office hours during the final exam week in accordance with the below schedule:
If you are wondering why map quizzes matter, take a look at this map to the right and guess what is wrong with it. The image from a screenshot of a CNN broadcast in 2011.
Our second map quiz will be administered during the first 10 minutes of our class on Monday 11 April. For this map quiz, you need to be able to identify all the countries of the contemporary Middle East and North Africa, be able to list any five capital-country combinations, and be able to identify the major bodies of water (see first map quiz). For bonus points (optional!), you will be asked to identify the formal/informal colonial power that ruled over each state. You may use the below two annotated maps as a study guide. Please note there will not be a word bank, as it is your responsibility to know all the countries, cities, bodies of water, and their spelling.
During the spring term, there will be a number of campus events that are of relevance to our course. While attendance at these events is completely optional, those students wishing to earn extra credit in the course can submit a one-page summary of the event to the course professor via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) by no later than 3:05pm on the Monday following the event.
The one-page summary must contain both the identifying information of the student (Full Name, Course, Section, Submission Date) as well as the event (Event Title, Presenter's Name, Date of Event, Location of Event). The summary must be comprised of three paragraphs written on 1-inch margins and in single-space (not double-space). Please note your total word count should be no less than 500 words.
