Castle Project

Castle Project for World History

  • As I noted earlier, please see me if you have a problem with the project. It was assigned a month ago and there has already been plenty of time to iron our the problems you have with it face to face. None of these comments mean ANYTHING without a name attached to them. Your anonymous comments have no weight without a name. If you do not wish to 'build' a castle, please draw it. As I have mentioned a couple of thousand times, the most important part of the project is the paper. I will be grading the essay by looking for improvements in the concepts of comparing and contrasting. The thesis statement and conclusion are very important. As I have been doing this weekend, if you would like feedback on the paper, please email it to me.
