So, if you chose to submit a creative paper or project for your Term assignment, in either essay or point form, list the full set of criteria by which your project can be gauged to have failed. To wit,
- if the project does not advance an academic thesis
- if the project does not identifiably incorporate material from relevent scholarship
- if the project fails to relate directly to some number of the primary course texts
- if the project fails to represent and demonstrate advanced understanding of the central ideas of the course
- &c, &c.
The creative project must be accompanied by a concise scholarly essay of two to three pages in length justifying the academic validity of the project.
