    M J R A S G M N S A O S I N E T This class includes a research term project as part of its assignment that

    will be graded on form as well as content. To aid with both the form and content production of this project, the assignment has been split into five separate steps to help students manage the difficulties of scheduling the responsibilities a term project poses as well as helping monitor their pro-

    gression towards success.

    The five steps are as follows:

    Jan. 16

    Step 2 Jan. 23

    Step 3 Feb.


    Step 4 Apr. 3

    Step 5 PROJECT FAIR *optional* The Project Fair is an interactive showcasing opportunity for you to share your term project. During this event students you can showcase the term’s research work and final project. It is an entirely optional event and is open to all students who would like to participate.

    Apr. 17

    Step 1

  • A completely open project like this course calls for can be a daunting and intimidating kind of project to tackle. If you’re feeling overwhelmed and directionless, consider the following tips:

    • Use the project step descriptions on page 4 as the rubric for each step. The instructions for each step are the basis for the grades on each assignment.

    • At it’s heart, the project is a research project that communicates some kind of research about art, artists, etc. and shows why that knowledge is relevant and important. There are many ways to communicate in the 21st century, what’s the best approach for your new knowledge?

    • There is no wrong kind of project. But if you have doubts, talk to your instructor about it! She’s always open to being a sounding-board for projects and research. She’s just a text message or email away.
