For this assignment, you will write a 2-3 page paper exploring the
role of creativity in a particular domain.
First, pick some field of human endeavor. This is somewhat vague,
but we are trying to make it broad on purpose. For example:
Ideally, you should pick something you are personally interested in,
such as a subject you like to study, a favorite activity or hobby, or
a profession that you intend to pursue. In this case you can use your
own personal perspective to help you answer the prompt. However,
picking something with a personal connection is not a requirement.
Reflect on the role that creativity plays in your chosen activity or
field of endeavor. For example, you might consider questions such as:
Be sure to connect your reflection to multiple topics or
readings/videos discussed in the course.
You should have a first draft written by Friday, November 6, when
we will have an in-class workshop to give each other feedback on drafts.
Remember to take advantage of the rolling submission
policy: you can submit a draft at any
time prior to the dealine and get feedback. In any case, your final
draft must be turned in by Monday, November 23.
You must submit your document in PDF format. If you are using
Word, Pages, or something similar, there is typically an “Export to
PDF” option in the File menu. If you are having trouble figuring out
how to export your document as a PDF, please ask for help!
