RTM 305 Portfolio Project/Aztec Adventure Project/Extra Credit (Follow These Directions Carefully to Gain Maximum Points) The Portfolio/Aztec Adventure Project is intended to encourage your reflection on course topics in personally meaningful ways. Your responses should be within the page length guidelines provided for each assignment and no longer than that. I encourage you to compose outlines and rough drafts prior to writing up the final entries to gauge the length of your project. You will submit ONE document on Blackboard via the Turnitin system at the end of the semester. The best format for submitting this is as a “Word” document, but Turnitin accepts many different formats. Be sure to save electronic files on your computer or flash drive. Detailed instructions for submitting these projects will be provided toward the end of the term. Responses should be double-spaced using 12-point font. You are encouraged to include photographs, drawings, poetry, or other creative elements if you want, for a more personalized project. Be sure to include a Table of Contents and number all of the pages . (A sample Table of Contents can be found at the end of this document.) For full credit be sure to follow all directions carefully. You can choose either of the following options: 1) Complete ALL Portfolio responses OR 2) Complete the Aztec Adventure write-up AND complete ONE of the responses from the Portfolio #1-4 (your choice) AND complete #5. In other words, you will be completing the Aztec Adventure write-up and only two of the Portfolio responses. Note that these projects are not due until the end of the semester as listed on the course calendar. Late assignments will lose 20% of total points and will be accepted only up to 2 days (48 hours) after the deadline. Plan ahead and submit your materials on time to avoid needlessly losing points. Also, note that Turnitin is a plagiarism detection system. If you copy another student’s work it will be caught by the Turnitin system. For each section of the Portfolio or Aztec Adventure Project, type in the heading above the question, followed by your responses. Again, copy the heading to keep the paper organized and so I can follow your responses to each question. (The headings will be the same as those provided on the sample Table of Contents at the end of this document.) Students who put forth an earnest effort and answer the questions fully always do well. In other words, if you follow the directions and put forth an honest effort you have nothing to worry about. Students have vastly preferred these to more traditional “term” or “research” papers. The details for completing the Portfolio are presented first, followed by directions for the Aztec Adventure Project. At the very end of this document you will find the instructions for the extra credit book analysis and a sample Table of Contents.
