Collaborative final exam review

Posted in Uncategorized at 1:20 am by Dominique

Hi all,

During our last class I mentioned that we would prepare for the final exam by collectively reviewing terminology we’ve discussed over the course of the semester. I’ve listed that terminology below and assigned a few definitions (anywhere from one to three, depending of the complexity of the term) to each of you. Please post your responses by noon on Tuesday so that I can view them before the review session. Also, I invite you to post one question about identifying or applying any critical perspective we’ve discussed this semester underneath your definitions.

Various members of the class have also requested an additional review session. That extra session will be held on Tuesday, December 20th, from 11:30-1 pm. (I will check to make sure our classroom is free at that time.)

Please be careful and thorough as your compile your definitions, as others will be referring to them as they study. If you have not filled in a definition on your handout from class, go back to Bressler’s Literary Criticism to define it. **Note:  the terms that you’ve been assigned appear BELOW your name. Please post your terms as a comment on this post.
