Your second midterm exam will consist of 4 short essays. You will be provided with a list of 10 terms from which you will discuss 4 of your choosing.

Each essay-style identification should consist of 1 to 3 paragraphs, depending on the nature of the topic, in which you must provide a clear description of what or whom you are identifying, while placing the person or place or thing or event in its historical context in such a way as to indicate its significance.
