ASIAN HUMANITIES - Final Exam and Assignment #4
Class will meet on Thursday for a short unit on Japan. I will also plan to return your test papers and help you calculate your GPA. If you know you need to take the final, It is better to start studying now rather than later.
Assignment #4 is a combined quiz/paper – You must do this assignment if you missed any of the three previous assignments. You may also want to do this assignment if you did not score well on one of the first three and you want to drop a score and replace it with Assignment #4.
Bring your paper to turn in, and be prepared to take the quiz. See the schedule on syllabus for dates.
You will perform a very CLOSE READING (verses a quick or skim reading) of the three selections below. All pertain to the unit on Japan (these are also listed on the syllabus schedule of activity).
1. Five Women Who Loved Love- Ch 20-312
2. Leisure Notes –Ch 9- 316
3. Swaddling Clothes- Ch 20-316
Read all 3, then, choose ONE of the above selections and write a reaction paper of 400 words. See the syllabus for tips on the reaction paper.
Please remember that this quiz/paper is an equivalent of ONE of the previous assignments, so plan on spending an equivalent number of hours.
The final exam is comprehensive and covers all materials from unit tests 1,2, and 3. Use the study questions provided for the 3 exams to jog your memory. You must sit for this exam if you missed one of the three unit tests. You would want to take the final if you performed poorly on one of the unit tests. The final is open to everyone. The lowest of your scores for the four exams will be dropped. See syllabus.
The Multiple choice counts for 70% of the exam.
The images count for 30% and will include the ASSIGNED images for the tests (not necessarily only those chosen for the 3 tests, but all the assigned images). You will NOT have to discuss the images, merely identify by title and culture (religion if specified) as listed on each study guide –Fro example,
“Himeji Castle- Japan”; “Blue and White Ming porcelain- China”; “Stupa- Buddhist- India”; “Shiva, Lord of the Dance, Hindu- India”- counts for about 30-35%.
