Select one of the readings or films from the course outline and a theme, issue,

Select one of the readings or films from the course outline and a theme, issue, or concept from it. For example, if you are intrigued by “Punishment,” you might work with the issue of “women’s rights at the turn-of-the-century.”  If you find “Yellow Woman” thought-provoking, you might explore an idea related to Native American culture. Please Note: You may use one, and only one, reading from the course outline or course materials in this project. The other four artifacts you use must be a result of creative and critical thinking and of searching and researching. You may not select a theme and use all five examples of the theme from the course materials. 
Next, search for a work of literature, art, music, and film (one of each!) which relates/connects to your chosen work from the course and illustrates/connects to your theme, issue, or concept. Again, these four artifacts should not come from the course materials, but should be ones that have resulted from your creative and thoughtful search. The work of literature must be a story/novel/play/poem that you have read on your own or that you plan to read during the research phase of this project; the section about literature cannot be a summary of a Wikipedia entry or a similar source. If you need help finding a literary text that relates to your chosen course work and theme, you may want to research works of literature on Project Gutenberg or Literature Network. Likewise, you must view the film you decide to write about. Search academic websites, museum websites, and other legitimate sources for works of art.  Do not get your artifacts from Google Images, Facebook, personal blogs, and such. Your four research items should not come from the course materials, but from your creative and thoughtful search. Again, this is a research project, although not a traditional research paper. 
Assemble your five items (course work + lit + art + music + film) in a Word document.Post your project to Safe Assign for grading AND to the Making Connections Discussion Forum to share with your classmates at the end of Week 5 by Sunday at 11:59 pm. Post your Word document to Safe Assign, but if you prefer, you may convert your project to a web page, a blog, or a PowerPoint in order to include film clips and other media when you present your project to your classmates. PLEASE NOTE: Safe Assign will not accept PowerPoints, unless they are converted to pdfs.
Begin with an MLA heading and a title (such as Making Connections: Transition from Childhood to Adulthood).
List your topic/concept/issue.
Include the bibliographic information for each of the five items in MLA format. Here is the link to the MLA Style GuideLinks to an external site. (you need to search for the appropriate section in the menu on the left-hand side).
Start with the course work. Following each bibliographic entry, include a two-paragraph annotation (250-300 words) for each item. In the first paragraph, analyze the artifact. In the second paragraph, explain how the item connects to your chosen work and theme; this means that you will have to discuss both your specific artifact and the course work in the second paragraph. You also need to make sure that you explain clearly what each artifact suggests about your chosen topic. For example, it is not enough to state that each artifact addresses women’s rights. You need to explain what each particular artifact suggests about your topic (e.g., what does the story suggest about women’s rights at the turn of the century, etc.).
Incorporate and discuss 3-5 quotations from your primary sources (the five artifacts) to illustrate your points. Document your quotations using MLA format.
PLEASE NOTE: Be sure your paragraphs are written in your own words and are not copied/pasted/plagiarized. Just as in a research paper, you must put quotation marks around any words, phrases, and sentences that you copy from a source or from information found online, and you must document the source of the information, using MLA format. 
Include visuals, song lyrics, or other media in the presentation of your work. 
I can send the readings and you can choose which one you wanna do the project over or I can pick one for you. I have attached student examples of this project.
