Please also read the rubric below carefully as this is how your exam will be assessed.Your responses should take the form of a short essay. This means full sentences and no bullet points. Headings are not needed either.Be sure to ID all artwork mentioned; this includes artist, title (italicize), date. Please do not discuss the same artist than once in this exam, and so make your selections wisely for each question. For example,if you refer to Kent Monkman in question #1, don’t in question #2 or #3. I HIGHLY recommend taking the time to draft an outline for each question before writing, so as to avoid overlap. And, given how much time you have to submit your exam, you have the opportunity to be thoughtful in your responses and so avoid writing from a stream of consciousness.This exam is open book which means that can access to your notes and readings. In fact, and as a result, you are expected to refer to your notes and readings, and in explicit ways. Using sources outside of class material will not be accepted and will be considered as plagiarism for this exam. You are welcome and in fact encouraged to refer to oral presentations including your own. Citations can look like this: (Bissonauth, week 3) will suffice for example, or (Moray, 62) for readings, or (Tau Lewis, OP) for oral presentations. Otherwise, please refer to these links for proper citation procedures.https://spark.library.yorku.ca/creating-bibliographies-citation-style/.Remember that embedded citations must be included for direct quotations or paraphrased ideas. Repeat them as often as you use information from those sources.Please try and stick to the word count. 10% over/under is ok.
