English 2 Final Exam Review Sheet (Fall 2016)

Your exam will be scantron and online (to be completed on Friday, December 16) and will include a short written response (to be completed during the “Wrap Up” day). I will provide paper copies of the exam if needed, but answers will be marked online. There are approximately 70-80 matching/multiple-choice/true or false questions. This final exam will cover everything we have studied this semester. Please be familiar with all terms, techniques, and texts that we have studied thus far.
In case you are done early, please have a reading book or materials to study for other final exams.
Literary Terms (use the space to define these if necessary)











Conflict (types)

Point of view





















Please review all short stories in addition to your notes for the novel To Kill a Mockingbird and the play Antigone. It would be wise to check old homeworks, quizzes, worksheets, etc. that you have saved in your folders. Look at the questions in the book after each story; if you can answer those, you will be prepared for the literature sections of the exam.

Short stories
“The Pedestrian”

“The Possibility of Evil”

”Lamb to the Slaughter”

“The Bass, the River, and Sheila Mant”

“The Masque of Red Death”

“The First Seven Years” + the story of Jacob and Rachel

“The Storyteller”
Know authors, major characters, critical events, and literary significances of all stories.
Also, study literary vocabulary. There is a brief matching section of literary vocabulary to definitions, and the essay will ask you to define a literary term and show how it is used in one of the short stories.
Study! Study! Study!
