Mash-Up "Mixed-Paper" Final Project -- a collection where you will 1) identify a critical question, claim, or concept that will frame and organize your project; 2) write a page of introduction, a kind of prologue to the project explaining your overall goals; 3) select and revise and order four of your Critical Response Papers, which fit, explore, or support your organizing analytic; 4) include between each part of the project an image, verse, or quote from the readings or outside research that provides transition and furthers your analytical ‘story’; 5) write a page of conclusion, a kind of epilogue to the project.
