The Museum Project Part 2: Creating the Project

The Museum Project Part 2: Creating the Project

After you have received feedback on Research Project Part 1, you will create your presentation or video.

  • The presentation must contain 8-10 minutes of content.
    • Generally, it takes about two minutes to read one full page of text when written with 12 point font and one inch margins
    • You may submit a written or spoken narrative
  • The presentation must have 3-5 scholarly sources and contain at least four artistic examples
    • The sources must come from the BC Online Library or its databases
    • If the art being used for the presentation contains art forms other than images, the presentation must still contain a minimum of two images
  • The narrative must provide citations for quoted or summarized materials.
    • If you are speaking your narrative, be sure to indicate when you’re quoting or summarizing someone else’s ideas. Also indicate whom you are referencing.
    • If you type your narrative instead of recording it, remember
      • It needs to be submitted as a separate Word document
      • It must include appropriate citations
  • Create a Works Cited slide or Works Cited Page, indicating the citations for the images as well as the 3-5 research sources you’ve used
  • Remember that the PowerPoint is a presentation.
    • PowerPoint slides should not contain long selections of text.
    • The slides should contain clear images, the image citation, and perhaps one or two short phrases to highlight a point
    • Here’s a helpful video:
  •  NOTE: Some submissions exceed the file size for submitting to D2L. Please use an external dropbox or a YouTube link for large submissions.

Outline is already done : Here is feedback from the professor that could be used to make my final project better.


1. the topic- Where does the topic intersect with the course material?

2. Research- Remember that the images need to be “read” and have a meaning constructed that supports the overall thesis. Many of these images seem to be difficult to interpret and suggest only an illustration of an event.

3.Humanities disciplines- Humanities disciplines can be found in Unit One , sources for this Practicing the Humanities |Amanda Anderson | TEDxBrownUniversity (14:20) and The Classroom Mosaic: Culture and Learning | Experience Illuminates the Curriculum | (5:47)

4. Working thesis- Remember that a thesis is not a fact; instead, it is the statement of the project’s argument. What do you want to say about the specific materials you’ve collected? What should we learn?

5.Outline- The outline seems to suggest a report rather than an analysis. Remember that the goal is to create meaning and analyze the materials you’ve collected.
