Assignment 2: Project Paper


Due Week 8 and worth 200 points

The Project Paper focuses on a suggested topic related to art, architecture, history, music, or literature. The project will reflect your views and interpretation of the topic. This project is designed to help you stretch your mind and your abilities to be the creative, innovative, and critical thinker you already are! 

Choose one (1) of the topics from the list of topic choices below. Read the topic carefully. Write a three to four (3-4) page paper (750-1,000 words) that responds to each of the items described in the topic.

Note: Your instructor may require you to submit your topic choice for approval before the end of Week 5.

For the topic you choose:

  1. Support your ideas with specific, illustrative examples. If there are questions or points associated with your chosen topic, be sure to answer all of the listed questions and address all of the items in that topic. If your topic requires you to do several things related to the topic, be sure to do each of the things listed.
  2. While some of the topics tend to lend themselves toward particular writing genres, you are not restricted to the specific format suggested for the individual topic. For example, you may do an “interview,” a “proposal,” a “letter,” a “short story,” a “blog,” an “essay,” an “article,” or any other written genre for almost any of the topics. The project is intended to be fun as well as informative, so feel free to be creative with the delivery of your information.
  3. Use at least three (3) good quality academic sources with one (1) source being the class text. Note: Wikipedia and other similar Websites do not quality as academic resources. You are highly encouraged to use the Resource Center tab at the top of your Blackboard page.
  • Ancient Emperors. Deathbed Memoir. Pretend you are one of the emperors we have studied, such as Constantine. You are on your deathbed and want to write a brief account of your life. As you look back over your life, what do you consider your greatest accomplishments in 1) politics, 2) art / architecture, and 3) religion, philosophy or intellectual life? Finally (4), describe and explain anything you have done for which you fear history will judge you harshly, or present the proudest aspects of your legacy.

The Project Paper will be graded on:

  1. The level to which the instructions were followed.
  2. The extent to which all four (4) parts in the topic were addressed.
  3. The adequacy of information, examples, and details which support the general claim or main idea.
  4. The relevance of the explanations and descriptions.
  5. The inclusion of three (3) required references (two additional sources besides your textbook) documented using APA style.
  6. Adherence to standard rules of grammar, punctuation, and mechanics.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; references must follow APA Style format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions specific to the selected topic. (Note: Students can find APA style materials located in the course shell for reference)
  • Include a cover page containing the tile of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required page length.

I have chosen Constantine for this Assignment. Please follow instructions for Memoir. If you have any questions or are unsure of what the assignment is please ask early. Please see attached rubric
