FINAL PROJECT WORLD GEOGRAPHY
Your final project is due NO LATER THAN May 5th @ 8:10 a.m for GEOG 101 01. Projects may be turned in as early as April 28th. This is worth 100 points and you must complete it entirely to receive full credit. I will not accept electronic submissions, you must turn in a paper copy to me by the deadline or risk receiving a grade of ZERO on the final project. Anyone submitting the project by one week prior to the final deadline (April 28th) will automatically receive five points extra credit for the project.
Look at each of the following Standards for Geography and reflect back on what you have learned this semester in this class and write at least one or more paragraphs with examples illustrating how this course met that standard. Completely describe in detail how each standard was met and give at a minimum of 2 examples per Standard. Make certain that you copy and paste the entire Standard description and write your response below that (i.e. STANDARD 1. How to Use Maps and Other Geographic Representations, Tools, and Technologies to Acquire, Process, and Report Information From a Spatial Perspective). For the 10 point questions at the end of the Standards you should write about one-two pages for each question in order to receive the full 10 points. At a bare minimum you will probably be submitting a total of about 10-12 pages to effectively complete this assignment. Using information (i.e. similar references or explanations) from the examples listed at the National Geographic website I've linked for you in class will be considered plagiarism and will be dealt with per information in your course syllabus.
