CHY 4U 2012: Test Prep

General Notes:

Always frame your thinking with questions and connections.  Ask yourself why this particular person, concept, or term matters. Also make sure that you understand how it connects to other people, concepts, or terms.

I’ve edited our list slightly. Those things in bold (whether headings or specific items) are more important; the “bigger” questions on the test will deal with these subjects.Those non-bolded items are important for factual support for other terms/concepts, or were not discussed in enough detail to merit an entire question. If you can write 1-3 effective sentences about these non-bolded items, then you are on the right track.

Please note that any questions from the Quiz Show on Wednesday can be included (except, of course, for the question about your favourite costume).
