Exam question prep: Monday/A03
To prepare for some end-of-quarter, pre-exam summation and review, let's think about potential exam questions. You will receive the list of possible exam questions during lecture on Monday. But before that — by midnight Sunday! — each student must submit a question they think could be an exam question. What do you think Patrick will ask for a final exam? Better: How could the material we've read best be compared, contrasted, and discussed?
Submit your potential question in the comments section of this post. Do not duplicate questions; read previously submitted ones to make sure yours is not similar.
In class, our discussion leaders will offer some examples and ways to get at some of your answers, and we'll firm up the overall trajectory of the course.
