The end of the semester is upon us...
Talk about "first year experiences", who would have thought I would come to college and learn about graveyard iconology, the deceased in Charleston, and bereavement. It was an eventful class to say the least and I am glad I had the opportunity to take part in learning far "Beyond the Graves." Here is a short video recap of a few of the graves that most interested me and the moments we experienced together. REST IN PEACE BEYOND THE GRAVE 2017
I have just finished up my final video project, which is composed with some awesome pictures that I have taken through out the past semester. What a wonderful way to recall all of the amazing things that we have seen over the course of the past few months. Click here to watch the final video!!
There will be several elements to this test: terms/definitions, multiple choice, matching, lists, short answer and an essay. There will not be anything on this exam that is not included in this study guide.
10 Point Video Project: This is due at the start of the exam and should be posted on your blog and the class blog. If using Kizoa, slideshow must be properly embedded on your blog with appropriate set up writing, two/more links and label words. With iMovie and other platforms, be aware that if your project exceeds 100 MB, you cannot put directly onto Blogger- you’ll need to upload to YouTube first.
