To prepare for the final exam, it is important that you review the learning objectives for each module and ensure you can identify some of the main points for each assigned resource. Think about how big ideas and main arguments relate to each other. Remember that you will have access to your notes, eClass, and the wgs102.org site, which means your responses to the exam questions should go beyond basic summary and provide critical analysis and thoughtful arguments using evidence from lessons and assigned resources.
The test yourself sections are helpful for testing your basic knowledge of the module, but acing each of the test yourself quizzes does not guarantee that you are prepared for the final, which will require you to discuss these concepts and ideas in much more depth.
In advance of the final exam, reflect on what the most important issues in the study of gender and social justice are for you. Why do these issues matter? Which big ideas and assigned resources from the course would help you make the case that these issues are important?
Most of all, remember that you have been preparing for this final exam throughout the entire term! You have been studying the modules, doing discussion posts, thinking about these ideas in your community service learning placements, and applying these ideas in your big idea challenges and presentations. So, it is important that in addition to reviewing some of the material, you also take time to eat, rest, and get out for a walk or some exercise!
