HIS 101
Extra Credit Special Project
Paper Assignment


The Folger Shakespeare Library (aka Folger Institute aka Folger Theater) is located on Capitol Hill, Washington, DC, near the Capitol and Library of Congress.  You would never know from looking at it that this simple, neo-classical building houses one of the world's great collections of Shakespeare related research material.  There is also an exhibition hall, and the Folger Theater preforms some of Shakespeare's--naturally--plays each year.  Photo credit Nigel Beale.

Since all students should enjoy their enrollment in this history course and, at the same time, earn the best possible grade, each student may do one of the HIS 101 Special Projects listed for extra credit.  Each project should be about two pages (maybe longer) in length.  In addition, your project must include complete bibliographic citation at the top left of the page (if necessary) with your name and date.  Note that some projects require the submission of a brochure.
The project should be sent to your course instructor following the directions for submitting assignments.
Please take a moment to review Charlie's History Writing Center for specific information on the writing requirements for the assignments in the course.
A brochure should be sent to the following address:
Extended Learning Institute
Northern Virginia Community College
8333 Little River Turnpike
Annandale, VA 22003-3796
Finally, since I am still working on the details of this assignment, students may email to me (for extra credit) suggestions for movies, books, museums and activities.

The Optional Extra Credit Special Project is worth a maximum of between 50 and 100 points.
