report on your progress in the benchmark reflections
Submit your initial ideas for a final project (with a write-up of ~1 page).
This should include: proposed topic, final deliverables (research paper? report? film?), how it relates to the course content, and how it advances your professional goals. Include a timeline with internal deadlines that breaks the project into achievable pieces.
For example, if you are writing a research paper, you could include a timeline that specifies you will have initial background research done by 2/24, a paper outline by 3/3, a first written draft by 4/7, and a final polished paper by 5/1. These deadlines are for you, so that you know the project will be achievable in one semester. I will not hold you to them, but you will report on your progress in the benchmark reflections (due 3/10 and 4/7).
