Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
Write a 300-word personal response to the online tour of the Louvre. Your response must have two components: (1) a summary of a few artifacts in light of this week’s course material, and (2) a personal response to the museum’s holdings and the museum itself. You must also respond to another student’s Museum Tour Response. Please provide links to the artifacts you highlight in your Museum Tour Response. Assignment purpose: This assignment will allow you to explore the online presence of world-class museums, and thereby gain more depth in understanding the cultures and periods under consideration for the week. This will be accomplished by following the link given in the “Online Museum Tour” section of the week’s Learning Activities. (course objectives 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.6, 3.2, 4.4) Grading: The Museum Tour Response must meet the 300-word minimum. A deduction of 10 points per 50 words short will be applied. A minimum of two artifacts must be addressed in the response (including a hyperlink to each artifact). An automatic 10-point deduction will be applied if only one artifact is addressed, and a 25-point deduction will be applied if no particular artifacts are addressed in the response. “Exhibits” do not count as individual artifacts. The response is to be written in complete sentences, including proper grammar and spelling. Excessive writing errors will result in a deduction.
