Project #80868 - Electricity project proposal

Project Proposal Assignment 

 

In this assignment, you will not complete a project. Rather, you will propose a project. This assignment is designed to allow you to be imaginative and draw on your own life experiences. Making use of two short essays (500-750 words), you will have the opportunity to demonstrate your mastery of Course Goals 1, 2, and 3 by:

 

  1. Accurately and effectively communicate ideas, information, arguments, and messages to present material in a historical context.
  2. Investigate and evaluate historical information from global, social, and ethical perspectives to guide decision making. 
  3. Applying historical precedent to contemporary roles, responsibilities, and relationships in order to advance the goals of a community or organization.

This project is broken into two parts and spread out over two weeks. In Part 1, you will briefly identify and propose a solution for a problem for a community or organization. You should propose sources of funding; detail the means by which you would achieve your project; and support the viability of your idea with historical precedents from the course materials.

 

In Part 2, you will explain how and why the way you are problem-solving would or would not have been possible before at least 2 technological transformations in human thought and worldview. These transformations should be spread out over time rather than exclusively modern transformations. For example, one transformation could come from the year 1000 or before. The second might come from between the years 1000 and 1700, or from between the year 1700 and today.

 

Using the printing press as an example, you will need to say more than that it would not have occurred to you to print posters before the age of the printing press. More importantly, your paper will explore the transformational shifts in the way people saw the world and conceived of what was possible as a result of the printing press. 

 

Midterm Exam Paper

 

In a 750 word essay drawing on the readings, you will have the opportunity to demonstrate your mastery of Course Goals 1 & 2:

 

  1. Accurately and effectively communicate ideas, information, arguments, and messages to present material in a historical context.
  2. Investigate and evaluate historical information from global, social, and ethical perspectives to guide decision making.  

You will choose 2 groups (women, laborers, farmers, believers, scientists and scholars, the middle class, the aristocracy, the agrarian poor, artisans, merchants, military people, entrepreneurs, religious authorities, heretics, artists, patients, builders and architects, physicians, musicians, entrepreneurs, etc.) and trace the technological transformations in their lives and the changes in how they see the universe. 

 

Final Exam Paper

 

After revising your Midterm according to the feedback you receive, you will add a new 750 word essay to it. This second 750 word essay will draw on the readings. This cumulative essay will allow you to demonstrate your mastery of Course Goals 1 & 2:

 

  1. Accurately and effectively communicate ideas, information, arguments, and messages to present material in a historical context.
  2. Investigate and evaluate historical information from global, social, and ethical perspectives to guide decision making.  

In total, this essay will be 1,500 words long, but do not panic! You will have already have written the first half of the essay. You are simply revising it in order to improve your writing and critical thinking skills. The inclusion of the Midterm with the Final as a single cohesive essay will provide you will a fascinating analysis of your 2 chosen groups as you trace the technological transformations in their lives and the changes in how they see the universe. Again these groups are any number of people: women, laborers, farmers, believers, scientists and scholars, the middle class, the aristocracy, the agrarian poor, artisans, merchants, military people, entrepreneurs, religious authorities, heretics, artists, patients, builders and architects, physicians, musicians, entrepreneurs, etc. The groups in the Final will need to be the same as the groups in the Midterm.
