Test chapters 9, 10, 11, 12, 15, 16
? Extended Responses. Worth total of 28 points. To earn these points, you answers should be your own
responses (not a group answer) and be detailed. You need to demonstrate that you have good
understanding of the course terms, theories, and related works. Take your time to fully explain your
ideas and back up your points with information from the discussions and textbook.
? You can write up your responses and copy/paste it to the submission field at test time.
? Multiple choice section may include specific material from the discussion board lectures and materials.
? This study guide is just that?a guide. Please note, this is not an exhaustive list of possible multiplechoice questions or definitions. Think about your studying from this model: Are you able to take the
information from basic recall to the higher levels of thinking? Multiple-choice may require you to do
more than just recall, you may have to apply (application), or put two or more ideas together to find the
commonality (synthesis).
? Exam will cover material from: discussion board materials, power points, videos,
and any text chapters
Extended response section: Everyone will do prompt 1 and 2.
Prompt #1 worth 16 points
Using this quote from UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres:
?COVID-19 has been likened to an X-ray, revealing fractures in the fragile skeleton of the societies we have
built,? ??It is exposing fallacies and falsehoods everywhere: The lie that free markets can deliver health care for
all, the fiction that unpaid care work is not work, the delusion that we live in a post-racist world, the myth that
we are all in the same boat. Because while we are all floating on the same sea, it?s clear that some are in
superyachts while others are clinging to the floating debris.?
Think about chapters 9, 12, 15 and 16 (Race, schools, work, healthcare) and focus on how this above quote
applies. In this extended response, you will use discussion lectures/zoom discussions, articles/videos to give
specific examples to illustrate the realities of how Covid has revealed inequities and challenges in American
Rubric: An excellent full point answer would include:
2 terms/theories per chapter that demonstrate learned material (terms from the lecture or book are
explained and fit appropriately) (8 points)
Use of specific references to discussion readings, power points, videos. Answer draws from the
resources from the course text and related materials and is not based on opinion (examples selected
should back up your point, cite specifically where you are getting the material from) (8 points)
One paragraph per chapter (4 paragraphs)
Prompt #2 worth 12 points
In this course you have been exposed to a lot of new material (hopefully) that has challenged your viewpoint
and expanded your view of the world. Go back through the discussion boards #5, #6, #7 and pick three topics
(from any of the three discussions) that either:
challenged your viewpoint
made you research more about the topic on your own
led to a changed position/perspective
and/or caused you to have a discussion about it with another person outside of class.
For each topic:
A. Briefly discuss each of the three topics and note what you learned specifically from the material
presented (refer to and cite the videos/lecture/articles/activities). (6 points)
B. How was your viewpoint challenged or changed by each topic (discuss your own perspective on the
topic before this course)? How did others respond when you discussed this topic with them? (6 points)
