Last Two Weeks of Project Work

 


 

1. Preparing Public Presentation Pages for Project

 

  • Public project page and subpages
  • Final short essay assignment to be revised to serve purpose of "findings and interpretation" (?)
    • Current description of assignment:
      • Due June 8 (the Monday after classes are over): This final "thought" essay is similar to the one earlier in the course in asking you for a thoughtful argument about something that interests you (see instructions for the first "thought" essay).  The difference is that the final "thought" essay should deal with some aspect or issue of the class collective project.  Note: the essay should not be a "report" on or "description" of the class project, but a reflection on the project, its issues, or its materials and the literary works it addresses.
    • Revised description of assignment:
      • Due June 8 (the Monday after classes are over): This final "thought" essay is your chance to focus on some finding from the class project (a discovery, feature, phenomenon that the project reveals) and interpret it in the context of children's literature of the 1880s, literature of the 1880's in general, and/or our methods of "distant reading" study.  Note: the essay should not be just a "report" on or "description" of the class project, but a reflection or analysis of some finding from the project.
