STUDY SHEET FOR HISTORY 475,
A. Exam 2 will be given on Tuesday, April
B. Exam 2 will cover:
- All lectures from Tuesday, February 15 (the Second Great Awakening
and the Democratization of American Christianity) through March
23 (the Azusa Street Revival of 1906-07 and its consequences).
- Hatch, The Democratization of American Christianity,
- Smith, Revivalism and Social Reform, all pages.
- Tallant, "American Revival Narratives," chaps. 5-9.
- Generally you should give priority to studying lecture notes,
since we have covered most of the important topics in class.
However, you can expect to see questions on the exam which require
specific knowledge of the readings.
- One sign of a good exam is that the essays give some evidence
of reading and thinking beyond class discussions. If you are
intellectually engaged with the course materials, including both
class discussions and outside readings, your essays will naturally
reflect issues and subjects which we have not had time to talk
about in class. Don't hesitate to work into your essays material
from the readings if appropriate and topical. (Don't put in material
from the readings just to put it in. The material must be a natural
rather than a "forced" fit.)
C. Structure Of Exam 2
- You will answer three essay questions: two worth 33 points,
one worth 34 points.
- For each essay you are to write, you will be able to choose
between two or more possible topics.
- The exams will be written in blue books provided by Dr. Tallant.
You do not need extra paper.
- Once again, the questions are large in scope. Many of you
will know enough about the questions that you could easily take
two hours or more to complete the exam. However,
you have only 75 minutes. You will need to
be selective in what you say while making sure that you cover
the key points. You may want to spend a few moments before each
question jotting down a brief outline to make certain that you
say everything you need to.
