Great Cultural Epochs II

Study Sheets:  Examination I


Three examinations will be given in CSP 201, each covering about one-third of the course. These exams will consist of essay, identification, matching, and multiple-choice questions, and they will be based on the items on these study sheets. Starred items are to be identified; be able to answer who? what? when? why? and where? for each item; specific examples should be used to illustrate each answer. Class notes and the assigned readings in Arts and Ideas will provide the needed information.
