This class will be a structured review/open Q&A for the final. My prepared presentation will cover the format of our exam itself and a general approach to essay exams. We’ll answer any open questions and collectively brainstorm some approaches. Please bring Maulana Karenga’s Introduction to Black Studies textbook with you also, since the second half of the class will be a review for the final exam.
Read my guide to final exams, “Zen and the Art of Finals” (PDF), which will help you begin to prepare for our final (and hopefully others as well). It summarizes much of what is usually in my prep sessions.
