Extra Credit Special Project
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.
