Break-out Title/Topic: Study Tips for Midterm Resources Time

Bridge-in:
In the previous years the average for this midterm has been usually low. This is
not because it is hard, but because usually students do not know how to study
for it. It is important to study smart rather than study hard.

the midterm monday.

Participatory Activity:
1. Divide mentees in 3 groups
2. The task of the first group is to state 3 ingredients of democracy of your
choice (out of 6 in total) and briefly explain them.
3. The task of the second group is to define the Fragment theory and
Formative theory and state the main difference between these two
perspectives.

the main difference between them
5. You can use your notes and the textbook to find the answer. You have
about 4 minutes to prepare the answer.

What are some study tips that we learned through this activity ? 2
Do you think you can do such an activity even if you are not in a group? minutes

Summary:
The purpose of the break out today was to get some study tips.
The activity I prepared was meant to put emphasis on a few things:
- Make sure you know the definitions and understand them
- Make sure you look at the chapter objectives because the main concepts
come from there. That is where I got the concepts to prepare for this
activity
- Make sure you know the concepts that we have covered in class good
enough that you would be able to teach it to someone else
- If you are behind with the readings of the book, make sure you
memorize the class notes first. Use the book to complete the notes that
you already have from class.
- Do not focus too much on what is mentioned on the book, but not
covered in class.
- Do not start studying the night before, but try to start a bit earlier
- Do not panic during the test, but write as much as you can because you
will get part marks.
- Lastly, if you want to organize a study group, it would be an effective
method to organize it like we did today.
