For your final paper/project:
• This project is your chance to put your stamp on the course!
• You have three options (familiar, new, or creative) from which to choose, but I need your proposals per course schedule.
CHOOSE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING OPTIONS:
A. Critical Analysis of a Familiar Piece
1. Pick a fantasy story written since 1900 that we have read in this course and do a critical analysis of it.
2. This will be similar to Paper #1, except that this time you should add outside research to support your ideas.
3. Write a well-organized, thesis-based essay that asserts a theory about the text and is supported by quotes, etc. from the text, as well as from your outside source. Be sure to include a Works Cited page, or the paper will fail for plagiarism.
4. The paper will be 5-7 pages in length.
5. Provide a formal outline of the finished paper.
B. Critical Analysis of a New Piece
1. Pick a story written since 1900 that you consider fantasy that we did NOT read and convince us:
a. that it is fantasy and
b. that we should read it, and perhaps add it to the course.
2. This will be the same as option A, with the exception of your intro
and conclusion. (intro will include a summary of the story and
conclusion will state why we should read it.)
3. Write a well-organized, thesis-based essay that asserts a theory
about the text and is supported by quotes, etc from the text, as well
as from your outside source. Be sure to include a Works Cited page, or the paper will fail for plagiarism.
4. The paper will be 4-6 pages in length.
5. Provide a formal outline of the finished paper.
C. Creative Piece: Character or Chapter of a Story**
1. Create a fantasy character OR write the first chapter of a fantasy story at least 5-7 pages in length. This can include “fan fiction.” YOU MAY NOT WRITE SCIENCE FICTION FOR THIS COURSE; SEE ME IF YOU PLAN TO DO A HYBRID!!!
2. Do some research to ground your character or story in “real life“ or literary tradition (what is his/her/its history? Bio?) Note any “predecessors” (your influences). You may cite the articles we have used in class.
3. Provide an annotated bibliography (bibliography with short paragraph summarizing the source), indicating what stories were inspirational to you and responding to at least one “manifesto” from a writer we studied.
4. Instead of a formal outline, provide a “front page” introducing me to your world, to provide context for the character/chapter.
**Warning!  This is not as easy as it looks!
NOTE:
*All projects will include research of some sort
++Research Ideas for Papers: 
1. A published review of the text(s) (check the Library database for reviews from academic journals, etc.)
2. Published critical articles on the piece(s) (check the Library database for reviews from academic journals, etc.)
3. Published sources that support your critical angle (historical data, biographical info, article from a textbook on post-traumatic stress, etc.)
4. Articles written by the author on fantasy, about his/her work, about art, or about life in general, etc.
