ENGB70/A. Maurice Final Exam Study Guide Format: The exam will be
divided into three sections: definitions (matching & fill in the blank), short
answer (including clip analysis and questions like those on the midterm),
and an essay question. The first two sections will draw on material we
studied AFTER the midterm. The essay will be comparative (asking you to
compare 2 or 3 films) and might draw from anything we watched all
semester. The essay might ask you to compare films according to subject
matter, themes, techniques, or any combination of these. Studying:
Obviously, you should have done all the reading, watched all the films, and
studied your lecture notes. In terms of the textbook: if we didnt cover
something at all in lecture, it will not be on the exam. However, there are
some things we might have just touched on in lecture that were discussed in
more detail in the textbook; you would be responsible for those. For terms &
definitions, you should look at the textbook glossary or definitions within the
chapters, as well as any definitions I gave in lecture. Please also be aware
that the reading assignments in addition to the textbook (the extra readings
on the syllabus that were provided online) will also come into play on the
exam. For the essay, looking at your lecture notes (and perhaps looking
back at viewing questions to refresh your memory) should be enough. The
essay is not marked on style (although it needs to be clear); it is about your
ability to answer the question specifically, fully, and well. You could use a
small introductory sentence or two while spending most of the time on the
body of the essay, answering the question in terms of the films you are
comparing. Quantity is not quality. 2-3 pages of your exam booklet should
be enough. Remember that the lecture slides, readings and extra materials
are all posted on Blackboard. List of terms:
