Research Project Requirements

I give my students a handout with requirements for the research project, and a set of questions that guide them through the process of research, which, in turn, they present to the class.

  1. Research one mask from any culture (ancient or modern). Get a picture of the mask you found.
  2. Where is the mask from? Provide a picture of the part of the world mask is from.
  3. What culture is mask from?
  4. Who are those people from that culture?
  5. Describe the culture's ritual that involves the mask.
  6. Describe a similar cultural ritual you might see in today’s society.
  7. You will present your homework to the class using a presentation board.
