GEOG 1982 COMPELETED MIDTERM STUDY GUIDE A List of Primarv Themes Kev Terms In general it is very useful to review the glossary at the back of the book the discussion points amp summaries already provided in the text Many of the terms overlap and are repeated in other chapters Midterm questions on overlapping terms are quite likely Since you will not have to write an essay or even a paragraph around these terms you should not worry about fully internalizing and understanding each concept but rather get a basic grasp of the term and then some sense of how these terms connect with other key terms HERE IS AN EXAMPLE QUESTION I will send you more example questions in the coming days From Chapter 2 1 According to human geographers social differentiation a occurs naturally b is produced through political and social struggles over power and resources c is established by societies recognition of innate human attributes The answer is Aharder variation of this question would add a choice D d in most societies re ects a hierarchical division based on individual merit and hard work Now you might have been tempted to say D but this would be a kind of ideological understanding of social differentiation that critical human geography challenges One could argue that in SOME instances social differentiation is the product of merit but the word most eliminates this as the likely choice All questions will be a mix of easy and more challenging MCQ s Cha 1 Culture Nature 8 17 Nature Culture binary Enlightenment Social Construction Social Constructions of Nature Marxist tradition First
