HIST 261­001 Spring 2015 Mid­term Examination Guide Your mid­term exam will be given on March 5 during our class period. You will have the entire  hour and 15 minutes to complete your exam. Please bring a blank blue book (no name or  anything written in the book) along with a pencil or pen to the exam. You may also bring a  standard­sized notecard with any notes you wish to use during the exam. The notecard will be  collected, but not graded, at the end of the examination.  The exam will consist of five essay questions. You will choose three and write a brief, but  thorough, response to each. The questions will be broad and focus on your ability to address  major issues of concerns by historians, not the memorization of geographical locations or dates.  Each response should include an identifiable argument and strong evidence from our classroom  discussions, lectures, and assigned readings.  It is highly recommended that you survey your  reaction papers, readings, and notes as you review for the exam.  Possible examination topics include: ­ how perceptions of African history have shaped the study of the pre­colonial African  past ­ the relationship between African people and their environments ­ the ways in which the geography has impacted African communities ­ the place of Egypt in African history ­ the influence of Christianity and Islam on different African societies ­ how historians interpret diverse sources to understand African history ­ different political formations in pre­colonial Africa
