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

For the topic you choose:

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.
