The midterm will consist of 3-4 general questions. You will have to combine the information you read, heard in class and saw on the excursions. The questions need to be answered in the form of short, essay-like paragraphs. Time: 60 minutes
The final will consist of three statements about the course content, of which you can choose one. You will have to write an essay (introduction, three arguments, conclusion) about one of these statements agreeing, partly agreeing or disagreeing with it. Time: 60 minutes
Furthermore, you are supposed to take notes during the excursions, analyzing them in the end and creating a fluent story that contains the main points of the excursions related to the reading assignments and the course content. This excursion journal should be about five to six pages.
In class at the beginning of each lesson, there will be a short discussion of primary sources handed out (e.g. photographs) one week before. You are required to examine the sources according to guidlines discussed during the first lesson and share your thoughts and findings with your colleagues.
