Working Drafts (35% of final grade)

After we cover each topic, develop your plan for implementing or addressing the issue for your specific project. Each essay will serve as a rough draft for a major section of your final NEH proposal. I will provide detailed feedback on your drafts that will help guide you as you revise them. As each essay informs the next, please hand these in on time so that you have a chance to get feedback in a timely manner.

Essay length will vary depending on the depth of information or the details of problems you might face. They should generally run at least four paragraphs, to deal with the general issues that come up in the readings.
