Best Practices
Back to Top
The following are the best practices in preparing this paper:

Title Page – Include who you prepared the paper for, who prepared, and date.
Table of Contents – List the main ideas and section of your paper and the pages in which they are located. The illustrations should be included separately.
Introduction – Use a header on your paper. This will indicate you are introducing your paper.
The purpose of an introduction or opening:

Introduce the subject and why the subject is important.
Preview the main ideas and the order in which they will be covered.
Establish a tone of the document.
Include in the introduction a reason for the audience to read the paper. Also, include an overview of what you are going to cover in your paper and the importance

of the material. (This should include or introduce the questions you are asked to answer on each assignment.)

Body of Your Report – Use a header titled with the name of your project. Example: “The negotiation between Company X and Company Y; An Analysis”. Then proceed to

break out the main ideas. State the main ideas, state major points in each idea, and provide evidence. Break out each main idea you will use in the body of your paper.

Show some type of division, such as separate sections that are labeled, separate groups of paragraphs, or headers. You would include the information you found during

your research and investigation.
Summary and Conclusion – Summarizing is similar to paraphrasing but presents the gist of the material in fewer words than the original. An effective summary

identifies the main ideas and major support points from the body of your report. Minor details are left out. Summarize the benefits of the ideas and how they affect

the tourism industry.
References – Follow APA Publications Manual, 6th edition in using in-text citations and include a reference page.
Additional hints on preparing the best possible project:

Apply a three step process of writing (plan, write, and complete).
Prepare an outline of your research paper before you go forward.
Complete a first draft and then go back to edit, evaluate, and make any changes required.
Use visual communication to further clarify and support the written part of your report. You could use example like graphs, diagrams, photographs, flowcharts,

maps, drawings, animation, video clips, pictograms, tables, and Gantt charts if applicable.

humanities 2

 

Knowledgeable interaction with works of art makes life better: We see more of what can be seen, and we hear more of what can be heard. Our entire existence grows richer and deeper.” (Sporre, 2009, p. 2).

From your studies, you have seen how culture, societal norms, belief systems, and past experiences affect the way people view the world. Learning about these differences in perspective helps us to have a better understanding of the overall human experience. Whether analytical skills are applied to a task at work, or a humanistic point of view enables us to grasp an issue from another angle, these methods of looking at the world help us become more aware of our perceptions and provide a deeper and more meaningful existence.

In this task, you will analyze and interpret three creative works from three separate disciplines of the humanities using methods of subjective and objective analysis. Objective statements are based on simple observations and concrete information. Subjective statements are based on personal opinions, judgments, and feelings. These standard methods of analysis will enable you to critically view and interpret works from the humanities. You will use analytical and critical thinking skills to assess how meaning is constructed and imparted to a viewer or audience and will communicate your thoughts in a multimedia presentation (e.g., PowerPoint, Keynote). While the content of your presentation will focus on analyzing, interpreting, comparing, and contrasting three creative works from separate disciplines, your overarching goal will be to explain how the three works you analyze demonstrate the value of the humanities in meaningful ways.

Background:

Develop a multimedia presentation in which you analyze three creative works from three separate disciplines in the humanities. You will need to select works that share a common theme. This theme must relate to a profession within your field of study at WGU. You will share with your audience how being knowledgeable about the humanities and your selected theme is valuable in regards to this profession.

First you must choose one literary work from the given list below. Choose a literary work that has a theme that resonates with you and consider how this theme connects with your chosen profession. Every profession within your field of study at WGU (Business, IT, Nursing or Teaching) will have humanistic considerations. For example, a civil rights lawyer may be concerned with the theme of freedom, a firefighter with determination, a social worker with compassion, or an engineer with integrity. It is the intent of this task to explore the major themes of the humanities and their relevance to our professional lives.
Once you have selected a literary work, you will need to select two non-literary works from separate disciplines that share the same theme as the literary work you have selected. Your presentation will show how all three works connect to the theme that you have chosen, and how that theme relates to a profession within your field of study at WGU. The two nonliterary works you select must come from the following disciplines: two-dimensional visual art (e.g., painting, photography, printmaking,), music or film (feature films, documentaries). You should choose works that appeal to you personally, are striking to you in some way, and/or evoke a strong response in you. In the presentation, you will show how exploration of the themes of these works can enhance performance in your profession and deepen your understanding of the human experience.

Note: Your multimedia presentation should contain 25 to 30 slides. This is not a conventional PowerPoint presentation. You may find that the majority of your slides are most effectively presented in paragraph form, with some utilizing the more traditional bullet point format. You are encouraged to use first person narrative (“I” statements) where appropriate. Your presentation should be self contained and all information should be on the slides (do not use speaker notes). Arrange slides in a way that creates cohesion and flow and use images to accentuate and substantiate points.

Note: This presentation should demonstrate the depth of the analysis and reflection that you have done. Your challenge will be to communicate your points through a series of clear, focused, and concise slides that represent your knowledge and convey your unique analytical points and insights.

Select ONE work of literature from the following list (works are available online).

NOVELLAS:
Death of Ivan Ilyich by Leo Tolstoy, 1886
The Invisible Man by H. G. Wells, 1897

SHORT STORIES:
“The Package” by Kurt Vonnegut, 1952

“The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson, 1948
“A Small, Good Thing” by Raymond Carver, 1983
“Silver Water” by Amy Bloom, 1993
“The Third and Final Continent” by Jhumpa Lahiri, 1999
“The Lost ??Beautifulness’” by Anzia Yezierska, 1920
“The Veldt” by Ray Bradbury, 1950
“The Handsomest Drowned Man in the World” by Gabriel García Márquez, 1968

POEMS:
“That the Science of Cartography is Limited” by Eavan Boland, 1994
“A Brave and Startling Truth” by Maya Angelou, 1995
“Invictus” by William Ernest Henley, 1888
“If” by Rudyard Kipling, 1895

ESSAY:
“A Talk to Teachers” by James Baldwin, 1963*
* While the essay title addresses teachers, this work has themes that can apply to all professions.

Select two creative works from the following disciplines (each work must be from a different discipline):

• Two-dimensional visual art (e.g., painting, photography, or printmaking)

• Music

• Film (feature film or documentary)

Note: Please do not select a film, artistic, or musical adaptation of your literary choice as one of the non-literary creative works. While it is important to select a literary work and two non-literary works that share a common theme, it is equally important to include variety in your choices. For example, you should not choose The Great Gatsby as your literary work and a film adaptation of this same novel, and a picture of Jay Gatsby.
