Ladies and Gents,
It has been a while. In fact, it has been so long that I fear we no longer have time to complete both the Age of Faith essay and the culminating activity (building a museum). Because I feel that both tasks are valuable, I’ve decided to leave the decision-making up to you. Each of you may decide to either write an essay or plan a museum; either way, your assignment will be considered the culminating activity. Please note that neither option requires additional research. Both options are to be based on content studied in the course; thus, no bibliography is required.
As I introduce your choices to you, I’d like you to consider the following questions; they should help you make a more informed choice:
- does your future area of study require that you know how to write an essay effectively?
- did you take this course because you hoped it would be interesting (sorry to disappoint), or did you take the course because you plan on studying in the Social Sciences?
- do you feel more comfortable expressing yourself through an essay or through a more visual method of presentation?
- is the game design option something that interests you? (keep this link in mind: https://pedrech.wordpress.com/2013/06/11/chw-3m-2013-how-to-submit-your-museum/)
