Final Exam

The final exam will consist of short essay questions, which will require you to write a paragraph in response to each. There will be four questions, and you will have 15 minutes for each one. The paragraphs should be 4-6 sentences each.

Use specific detail from the texts, songs, and films support your answer. (If someone could have written the paragraph without studying the thing that it talks about, it is not specific enough.)

A note on plagiarism: Because I have had to fail students in the past for problems on a similar final exam, I want to stress that all work must be your own. Do not consult any sources other than our readings, and cite the author’s name or the title of the text when you borrow ideas from it. Since you have only 15 minutes for each quiz, I do not require or expect direct quotes from our readings. However, if you choose to include any direct quotes (i.e. any language written by another author), use quotation marks and cite both the author and the page number.
