Part 1. Written Statement
The written portion of your project will consist of an explanation of your topic (Children’s understanding of time), an explanation of your project, and a statement of what you learned and how this project helped you connect with the material on a personal level. The written statement should be 4 to 7 well-developed paragraphs total and include 3 to 5 APA style citations total. Your statement should include the following subsections:
Explanation of Topic (2-3 paragraphs, at least 3 citations). Why did you choose this specific topic? Provide background information and an explanation of the topic. What do the authors of your text say about the topic? What have scientific studies found? What has been your personal experience? Compare and contrast these three sources of information (text, studies, personal experience).
Description/Explanation of the “visual” (type of project) you chose (1-2 paragraphs). Describe and explain the visual/type of project that you created. Why did you choose this specific visual/project?
Conclusion (1-2 paragraphs). What did you learn? Did anything surprise you? What concept(s) do you think will stay with you after this course and why?
Part 2. Visual Project/ Deliverable
Drawing on your interests, hobbies, and talents, you have creative control over the type of project you create. As you create your project, take pictures/videos of the creation process to submit as evidence of completion. It is your responsibility to submit photo/video evidence that you completed the assignment. For instance, if you will create a presentation (Prezi, PowerPoint, etc.) please upload a video of you presenting it. If you will create an original work of art, upload the final project AND pictures/videos of you in the process of creating it.
