Final Project Assignment

Final Project Assignment

The Final Project is an opportunity for you to explore a course-related topic or theme in greater depth. You are welcome to pursue any topic that is of interest to you (and for which you can find sources), provided that it relates directly to the overarching themes of the course. 

You may work individually or in small groups. If you opt to work in small groups, everyone in the group is still required to submit all parts of the assignment individually to D2L (except the brief presentation, which can be given as a group).

The assignment requires submitting: 

  • Proposal (due Feb. 28th)
  • an Annotated Bibliography (due March 7th)
  • Rough Draft & Peer Review (due March 9 & 11th, respectively)
  • Brief Presentation – Week 10
  • and the Final Project (due March 15th)

The Final Project must incorporate evidence from at least 5 sources—at least 2 must be from the syllabus and at least 2 must be “outside” sources (remaining sources can either be from the syllabus or from sources that you identify independently). You may opt to include more sources but these are the minimum requirements for a passing grade on the assignment. 

  • The two “outside” sources must be peer-reviewed. If your project involves materials that are not peer-reviewed, you can include them but in addition to the 2 peer-reviewed sources that are required. 
  • If you work in groups you may “share” all of the sources used for the project. 

There are 3 options for the Final Project: 

  • Option 1 – compose a final paper of between 1200-1500 words excluding footnotes/citations and bibliography (i.e. roughly 5-6 pages, double-spaced, 1” margins, 12 point font). The paper must include a word count and be structured around your argument, i.e. your analysis should be “thesis-driven.” Paragraphs should reflect the structure and logic of your argument and the evidence you are marshaling. You should also use one citation style (Chicago, MLA, or APA) correctly and consistently, and must include a Works Cited/Bibliography. 
  • Option 2 – Create a slide show (using Google Slides or PowerPoint) presenting the findings generated from the research for your Final Project. Your slide show must be at least 5 slides and each slide must include a formal written discussion and analysis of the slide in the Speaker/Presenter Notes. The written discussions of each slide must include references and citations to the sources used in the analysis and must collectively amount to between 800-1200 words. A Bibliography/Works Cited page must be submitted together with the slide show.
  • Option 3 – Record a video presentation of the findings generated from the research for your Final Project. Your presentation must be at least 10 minutes in length and must be fully prepared in advance, i.e. your presentation must be written in advance and thus is not simply a moment to informally speak “off the cuff.” The presentation must directly reference the sources used in your research and a Bibliography/Works Cited page must be submitted together with the video. 

All Final Projects must be very closely PROOFREAD.


Final Project Proposals

Your proposal must include: 

  • a brief statement of what you intend to focus on in your paper, which could take the form of a research question, provisional argument, and/or a brief discussion of the scope, but might simply state the topic or area of further investigation.
  • a brief statement of which option you are thinking of pursuing for the final project.
  • a working bibliography of sources that you intend to consult. This bibliography can change. For full credit you need to have identified the 2 sources you intend to integrate from the syllabus and 1 of the sources you have identified on your own (i.e. only 3 of the required sources). 

Annotated Bibliography

The assignment for the annotated bibliography is to provide a citation and brief annotation for each of the sources that you intend to incorporate into your analysis. The annotation should very briefly introduce the scope of each source and briefly explain why it is important to your project (not more than 250 words).


Rough Draft

The rough draft should be a working draft of your final project and thus depends on which option you are choosing for the project. Feedback generated from instructor and peer review of your drafts should allow you to refine and improve upon your final project.

  • If you are opting to compose a research paper, you should aim to draft around 75% of the final paper, but at least half (i.e. at least 900 words).
  • If  you are opting to create a slide show, you should have at least 50-75% of the slides completed
  • If you are recording a presentation, you should either have 50-75% of your script drafted or a thorough outline of what you intend to include in the presentation
     

Brief Presentation

Everyone will be required to give a 4-5 minute presentation of their final project during Week 10. If you opt to work in groups, your group presentation will be longer. These presentations should include:

  • An introduction of what your project is about and why you chose it for your project
  • A brief statement of what you learned through the project (i.e. what you found, try to include at least one specific example to illustrate your findings to the class)
  • How your project relates to and/or builds upon what you have learned in the course
