It is your responsibility to identify them in your text and be knowledgeable of them in preparation for online quizzes and in-class exams. The more you relate these terms, topics, and people to your current memory (by association) the better you will understand them and be able to retrieve them for exams. Some quiz items will be on the exam, but the majority of multiple choice questions will be from the “Terms, Topics, and Persons” chapter-by-chapter list below, and some exam items will be from class lecture and PowerPoint presentation content. Reading the text prior to class, active listening and taking notes in class, and reviewing the PowerPoint presentations on MyFire will help you to better understand the terms, topics, and persons at an applied level.
