Unit 9 Final Project:
Throughout this course, you were asked to think about your Final Project. For your Final Project, you will construct a Portfolio documenting your successes in achieving key objectives in the class.
The three primary course goals reflected in your Portfolio will be:
- Analytical skill building: Improving your critical reading, writing, and thinking skills.
- Knowledge acquisition: Mastering knowledge of central concepts, ideas, and perspectives of the humanities. A summary of major ethical theories should be included in this section as part of knowledge acquired.
- Practical application: Learning how to connect course material to issues you care deeply about and thoughtfully applying course material to your own life goals, decisions, and practices.
Your Portfolio can also include information about your work in other areas, such as the work you did to achieve the personal goals. Examples of documentary evidence to use in your Portfolio include, but are not limited to, excerpts from your papers and rewrites, examples of your reading notes, selected Discussion interactions, and email correspondence with the instructor.
Your Portfolio will also require you to reflect on your progress in meeting course goals, including your own evaluation of the effectiveness of your work habits, your reflections on any difficulties that you faced, and any special challenges that you overcame.
The Portfolio may be organized as a Word document, a PowerPoint presentation, or in a multimedia format approved by your instructor in advance.
