1. Now that you've taken the midterm exam, how might you improve when you take the final exam at the end of this course?
I can improve by starting my studying period earlier and by knowing more of the terms on the study guide. Also, by memorizing dates! They are not my strong point.
- Good analysis.
2. Comment on Music or Art History
Ludwig van Beethoven was an incredible composer. Beethoven lived from 1770 to 1827. This man revolutionized instrumental music. His musical works are both brilliant and beautiful. Though deaf before age 40 Beethoven hadn’t yet composed his greatest works! While not able to audibly hear a single note later in his life, he still took music to new heights.
- Superb answer.
3. Describe the Congress of Vienna and its significance
The Congress of Vienna established a balance of power among european nations so that one couldn’t be threatened by the other. Alliances were made that would protect nations from revolution or invasion. The Congress of Vienna gave legitimacy to the monarchies, recognized Switzerland as an independent nation, required France to return territories captured by Napoleon, Created the German Federation, created the Kingdom of the Netherlands, and allowed the Kingdom of Sardinia to include Genoa. From this, a lasting peace in Europe ensued.
- Terrific explanation, one of the best in the class.
4. Add three terms and descriptions to the "World History Study Guide from 1648" (the one for the second half of this course). If you add five terms and descriptions, then that will be credit for two questions.
I did Napoleon III, First French Empire, Second French Empire, William Prynne, and Bernhard Reimann
- Excellent choices. Your description for Riemann was particularly good.
- Grade: 50/50. Superb homework, one of the best in the class.--Andy Schlafly 17:21, 13 November 2011 (EST)
