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.
