CLAS 175: Take-at-Home Reading/Terms Quiz
Instructions for taking this quiz:
The BEST way, and one that you ALL should be able to manage (if you have
an E-Mail account, and I require you to have one) is as follows:
- 1)Make sure that you accessed this page through the LYNX browser
available on MAIL.SAS.
- 2)Once you have read these instructions, press 'p'.
- 3)The program will ask you if you want to print the quiz (you do
not), if you want to save the quiz to a file (you don't) or if you desire to
mail the quiz to yourself. You do. Make sure that the address the
program displays is the correct one. If it isn't, correct it. Then hit
- 4)Q_uit Lynx and wait for this quiz (relieved of its Weird World Wide
Web formatting) to show up as a letter in your mailbox.
- 5)F_orward that letter to me. The address (and if you miss this
question, you miss all the others!) is
if you're writing from mail.sas, which you most likely are,
firstname.lastname@example.org in all other eventualities. You will see my full
name come up as a confirmation from mail.sas.
- 5)When ELM (or whatever your browser) asks you if you wish to edit the
outgoing text, you do. You do, a lot.
- 6)Scroll down to the areas immediately below the questions below, and
type your answers. At the end, holding the 'control' key and 'x' will
send the whole upon its way.
- 7)Sit back and await results. I will definitely have the lot of them
graded before the Mid-Term on the 8th, and we will discuss this quiz in
class as well.
A brief note: You stand to suffer more severely than by a bad
grade by cheating! The idea is to see what you DON'T know yet, rather
than how well you can crib. You won't be able to use your books during
either of the two examinations to come. I believe and hope that this
warning is unecessary. Budget 20 minutes tops to complete the quiz, once
you begin taking it in earnest.
Identify two of these three terms. Give me three (or so)
sentences telling me 1)who, where,or what it is; 2)some species of
time frame; and 3)the item's significance for this class, in the terms of
your recent (Aineias) reading.
A single paragraph should handle this nicely. Who wrote this (no holds to
be barred on the midterm)? What does it describe, and why do we care?
Once you get past the identification, make an argument from what you see
and what you know.
"Something else which must be prohibited is going to bed with
lanterns or other night-lights. This is because it has been known for
individuals, finding themselves utterly thwarted in their wish to start a
revolution or to intrigue with the enemy to ... make a pre-arranged
