Germany by Lexi
Originally uploaded by trudeau
Semester exam - see exam schedule posted earlier - will comprise

- 100 multiple-choice questions to be answered on Scantron sheets. Bring a #2 pencil, right?

- The 100 will be drawn from questions used in all of the quizzes posted online this semester. Some of the questions will be straight-up copies of the earlier posts, some will be tweaked. Read carefully, needless to say.

- Additional points will come from a brief (about one page) comparison essay to be written in class.

You may choose your topic -
* Compare Lawrence and George Washington.
* Compare the nations of Israel and the US.
* Compare the sports of Brazil and Britain.
* Compare the cuisine of Jamaica and Louisiana.
* Compare the Amazonian rain forest with the Mississippi valley.
