Comparative Civilizations 12
The Middle Ages unit test will be this Tuesday -- allowing extra time for test writers during lunch break -- if it is needed. Your Romance and Reality (Gothic Age) package is due by 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday or before school on Thursday -- I will need Tuesday night to mark your tests, so likely could not get to package marking until the following day. We also will not get much or any class time to work on the package on Monday as we make up for losing last Friday's class.
The mark breakdown is as follows: 10 slide identification items (2 marks each), requiring you to name the work and say what city it can be found in - give the country for 1/2 a mark; Church Floorplan and nave elevation parts identification (1 mark each), 40 multiple choice questions (1 mark each); 2 from a choice of 3 illustration interpretation questions (6 marks each). The total value of the test is, therefore, 82 marks. This unit test covers everything from Islamic Civilization to the end of the Gothic Age.

Expect this test to have, roughly, the following breakdown: 75 multiple choice items (1 mark each -- note, this is slightly longer than indicated last week!); 5 map items (1 mark each); 2 out of 3 long answer options (12 marks each). The total is, therefore, out of 104 marks).
Topic #4 Questions.
Topic #5 and 6 Plan. -- note, to ensure we have enough classes to complete course content, we will run units 5 and 6 into one -- "The Cold War" and we will not waste a block for a unit test as this material will form a significant part of the final exam that we write at the end of the course in any case. These questions will also be submitted in two parts. Questions #1-62 will come in at the end of the first week in January (marked out of 35) and the remainder are due on the last day of classes (marked out of 15).
