Final Project
This course is built around the production of a Final Project that allows students to demonstrate their ability to identify key scientific ideas and concepts found in the course readings and to communicate these ideas/concepts through a creative work. Students complete a proposal for their project by choosing a focal reading and constructing a concept map depicting their project idea. After submitting their work, the class spends the final weeks of the course presenting and discussing their Final Projects. The guidelines for this assignment can be found here. Below are some of the best student Final Projects I have received, downloadable as PDF’s:
