Study Guide for W/ST 318I: U.S. Women of Color Midterm

You will need a blue (green) book for this exam and will NOT be permitted to take the exam without one. The exam will last the entire class period and is closed book. It will consist of two sections: identification terms and short answers. Below is a list of topics, words, and phrases that we have learned about thus far. The exam questions will be drawn from this list. For the identification section, you will be given a set of 7 terms and will need to pick 5 to define (8 points each = 40%). For the short answer section, you will be given 7 questions pertaining to a combination of these topics/terms/ phrases and will need to answer 5 of them (12 points each = 60%). Advice: review the reading and your notes from lectures/films and readings carefully. I am looking for the ability to discuss these concepts in a way that reveals that you really understand what they mean and can use them properly to comment on the events you have learned about.

Sample short answer questions:
Name three (3) “realities” behind the myths of Asian American wealth & employment that Deborah Woo discusses in her essay.
