Tips for Succeeding in Dr. Costanzo's Class


Exam Format

  • 3 ID Terms worth 20 points each
  • 1 Essay worth 40 points

ID Practice

  • What information should be contained in a thorough ID answer?
    • WHO?
      • Sometimes the "who" will already be included because the term is a person. If the term is an event, location, or group of people, be sure to mention specific key players if they are provided.
    • WHAT happened?
      • Give a good, thorough definition or description of the term.
    • WHEN did this happen?
      • This can be an exact date, a year, a century, or a time period/era (ex. Pre-Civil War).
      • Be aware of the information provided in class. If Dr. Costanzo provides you a year, then provide a year. If he provides a century, then make sure to provide the correct century.
    • HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE
      • This is the part where you will make an inference about WHY this term is important to the time period, topic, and/or history in general.

Using your history notes, please complete a thorough ID answer for the term
