<ul><li><p>7/27/2019 Second Midterm Review Sheet</p><p> 1/2</p><p>ENGLISH 2U (GROUP 1) 2 ND MIDTERM EXAM REVIEW SHEET</p><p>This test is going to require a great deal of skill in linking concepts from the various types of material that we have studied thusfar this term. In addition to preparation, critical thinking and time management will play an important role in achieving a hightest result. It is a long and difficult exam, so I recommend studying all material thoroughly and being alert enough to use your </p><p> brain on test day. The test has 25 questions and is split into four parts:</p><p>I. V OCABULARY (16 Q UESTIONS W ORTH 40 POINTS TOTAL )</p><p>This section will test you on the vocabulary from To Kill a Mockingbird, Chapters 1-12.</p><p>Matching (4 words - 4 points) -You will be given 4 definitions and a word bank of 40 words from which to select ananswer. Watch spelling!</p><p>Definitions (8 words - 24 points) -You will be asked to write definitions for the words specified. You will not be given aword bank in this case, so make sure you can define any word that I give you. If you can provide a synonym to the word,you will be given full credit as long as it provides a clear explanation of the words meaning. Be sure to know the parts of speech of the words given.</p><p>Sentence Writing (4 words 12 points) - You will be asked to choose 4 words (from a word bank of 12) and writeexample sentences. For full credit, make sure that each sentence you write provides sufficient contextual information toshow that you understand the meaning of the words clearly. If necessary, write more than one sentence. See the example</p><p> below:</p><p>X The situation is dire . (This sentence is too simple. The meaning of the word is not clear)</p><p>O Ever since she lost her job, her living situation has become dire . She does not even have enough money for food or rent. (This sentence is good. The meaning can be inferred from the context)</p><p>Extra credit may be given for sentences using humor or creativity (at my discretion)</p><p>II. T O K ILL A MOCKINGBIRD &amp; T HE GREAT DEPRESSION (4 Q UESTIONS W ORTH 25 POINTS )</p><p>A. Read (or listen to) the following to prepare:</p><p>The Depression in the United States An OverviewStories from the Great Depression Studs Terkel (Transcript of NPR Radio program)To Kill a Mockingbird Chapters 1-12</p><p> B.
