Module 5: Final Draft (200 Points)
Your Final Signature Assignment is due. This should be a culmination of everything you’ve completed in Weeks 1, 2, and 3. It will analyze a work of art that relates to your Major at Carrington. As you know, the work of art can be a painting, a type of music, a film, or any other type of art we have covered during this course.
This assignment will be graded based on the rubric located on the Course Documents page. To get to Course Documents, click on Pages in the course menu, then click View all Pages, then Course Documents, there you’ll see Final Draft Rubric.
There’s also a minimum requirement of 4 outside sources and the paper should be no less than 3 pages in length (you can use the same sources you used in the week 2 Signature Assignment, but please don’t include the descriptions).
Module 5: Final Draft (200 Points)

Student Learning Outcomes: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
1. Given a representation of a work of art (such as a painting, poem, sonata, or cathedral), analyze the work’s content, form, materials, meaning, and method of creation to enrich understanding of and appreciation for that work.
2. Given a representation of a work of art (such as a painting, poem, sonata, or cathedral), and a critical interpretation or statement of aesthetics, evaluate the artwork against the interpretation or statement in order to show differing critical and aesthetic perspectives on the artwork.
3. Given representations of two works of art of similar or differing disciplines (such as two paintings or a painting and a poem), compare and contrast their contents, forms, and/or methods of creation in order to identify the scope of the respective disciplines and to clarify disciplinary differences.
4. Given representations of multiple works of art, classify them using a variety of approaches (by discipline, genre, style, period, etc.), in order to demonstrate ability to contextualize the works.
5. Given a representation of a work of art and a particular summary of the time period when the work was produced (such as the Mona Lisa and a history of the Italian Renaissance), formulate relationships between the work and its historical context to augment understanding and appreciation for both the artwork and the time period.
6. Given information about a cultural phenomenon (such as a work of art, an issue, a trend, or a social or personal value) and documents describing a philosophical school of thought (such as theism, enlightenment humanism, existentialism, or French postmodernism), analyze the relationships between the cultural phenomenon and the school of thought.
7. Given a significant technological advance (such as the printing press or camera), assess the effects of the technical breakthrough on culture and art.
8. Given documents describing a particular society (such as classical Greece or Victorian England), evaluate the role and purpose of one area of the humanities in that society.
9. Given a variety of philosophical positions (such as classical humanism, existentialism, pragmatism, or postmodernism) and specific philosophical issues (such as epistemology, ethics, or aesthetics), critique differences among the positions in regard to the issue.
10. Given a specific social conflict or moral dilemma (such as euthanasia, abortion, or social welfare), apply a particular ethical perspective to propose a solution or course of action.
