Creative Final Presentation
20% of your Final Grade
You can write a 4-page paper, create a short film (you can use your phone, or create a film using i-movie or any other format), create a blog, create an e-zine , create a magazine, take photographs, make artwork, write a poem, create advertisements, make a music video, make your own Its On Us project (examples here; http://itsonus.org/#landing; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKu8TSmiimY;). These are just a few of the options available. I know this might sound a little childish but you could think back to your elementary days and dress up like a feminist figure from history and give a speech or write a letter from their point of view. If you have other ideas please get approval from me. I would like approval for all of your idea before your proceed. Even though this is an online class you can do a group project if you want to connect with someone else in the class. No more than 3 people are allowed in a group. If you choose to write a paper you need to work alone and not in a group. I want you to have some fun with this project, and get creative.
