You will assume the role of a museum curator, a scholar with an idea for a show that will have both appeal to and impact on the broader public. Thus you must develop an exhibition proposal, one hopefully on a topic in which you have a particular interest and knowledge. The presentation of this proposal will be ten to twelve minutes in length and will occur in the last weeks of the semester. The entire class will provide critical commentary on your presentation, probing weak and strong points in an effort to improve the idea. Based on the comments you receive from class members and me, you will revise your concept and submit it to me as a written proposal, one that may be varied in format to suit your needs (see examples on course website under readings) but which should be approximately 10-12 pages in length.
Can't change a rubric once you've started using it.
