Senior Seminar

For my senior seminar course, I decided to take a course that revolved around the environment and sustainability issues. The first half of the semester consisted of reading novels and texts that were about the environment. The second half was all about our final documented essay, which was essentially our capstone project for our entire major. Below, you will find each step my professor took with us along the way to ensure we had a glowing final project.

Our final projects could be on any topic we desired as long as it was about the environment and sustainability. We were required to write a minimum of 15 double-spaced pages, do two presentations of our essay (the first as a proposal and the second as a final product), have at least 10 secondary sources, an MLA-style cover page, and an MLA-style bibliography. All of the graded steps for this documented essay came out to being worth 70% of my final grade, the final draft alone being 25%.

The Proposal

This was our first assignment, which was to write at least 500 words explaining our desired topic and how we planned to execute it. We also had to find at least 6 preliminary sources to use as well as finding a scholarly journal to potentially submit our final product to.
