You are ready to do the final construction and polishing of your online exhibition! Your exhibition will include all stages, 1-6 (identified and in order), all images, any needed revisions plus any necessary additional information such as the Abstract (assigned for week 8) and a Conclusion (1 or 2 paragraphs) discussing how your exhibition illuminates the topic of the history in the arts and draws logical conclusions from the biography and analysis of the work that you provide.
A Descriptive Abstract about your Final Project should be around 100 words, single-spaced, 12 pt. Times; include 5 keywords). If you want a critique, post by Thursday.
- This abstract may be placed as the front page of your Final Project.
- See this important resource: http://writingcenter.unc.edu/handouts/abstracts/
- Here is an example of what a professional database listing with abstract looks like: http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/09528822.2010.517919#inline_frontnotes
Abstracts are a very important part of academic/scholarly writing, and need special attention, since most everything ends up on the Internet and into databases. Keywords are essential for database searches and can be included within the body of your abstract text. So, choose these words carefully and select what you think will draw people to your work. For this project, include a listing of your keywords (5) at the bottom of your abstract. Citations are usually not included in abstracts as you are simply describing your project. Write in third person, passive tense. What is this? Go to:http://www.squidoo.com/thesisabstract#module11245752
Be sure to consider comments and suggestions made by your professor. Your complete References List should demonstrate quality; include at least six scholarly references and credits for all images. (Encyclopedia type websites are not the best choice for a college level final assessment and no Wikipedia allowed except for images.) The text for the final version should be about 10 to 12 pages, excluding images and Reference List, depending on how many images you select. Submit by the end of week 8 into the properly provided area. Your References cited in text (Chadwick, 48) should be placed in a Bibliography and images that are referenced in-text (Figure 1) should be moved to the end and captioned in proper order to avoid issues with paper formatting when comments are provided.
