World Civilizations


Introduction: One of the beauties of the World Wide Web is virtually instantaneous access to information. A textbook covering a particular movement or crisis may take years to put together and publish, but information about current events can appear online as it happens. And if your tastes run to the more distant historical periods, there are resources on line to help you learn more about your favorite person, era, or artistic style.

Instructions: For the last project, we invite you to explore the limitless possibilities of the world wide web, and using the skills you've learned this semester, write a paper which explores any facet of world civilizations. The key to success on this project is FOCUS! You have limitless possibilities, but a finite number of pages to fill. Use online helps, consult with your professor or teaching assistant, and above all, enjoy the exploration. This is an opportunity to learn more about something that truly interests YOU.

(The Source List for this project features some of our favorite primary source archives for a variety of topics. It is not an exhaustive list, and you should certainly feel free to explore other sites.)
