There are two possible topics for Essay Three:
Creativity in My Future Career
Creativity Theory Found in a Particular Visual Artist or Type of Art
As students narrow down their topics, the focus of the essay will narrow. Examples might be:
Reasons behind Creative Fashion in the Nursing Field
The Art of Dennis Rodmans Creative Confidence
Cecilia Webbers Use of Nudes as Adaptational Modes
This essay should follow the structure of an argumentative research paper (see links below). As support for the arguments made in this essay about creativity, students will need at least four text-based sources from a variety of sources (one has to be from the databases): the textbook, the databases, or an online source and at least three image-based sources such as: photographs, drawings, videos, and so on.
If you are writing about your future career, the images can be representations of the career, people in the career, or the environment of the career. The images will need to be cited just as the text-based material is cited. See A Pocket Style Manual for templates for those citations.
The essay should be around 3 pages of text (not counting the addition of the images) and follow the 8th ed. of MLAs style and format. Standard American grammar, spelling, punctuation, and sentence/paragraph structure should be followed. The POV should stay in 3rd person.
The definition of creativity that needs to be used is from dictionary.com: the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, [and] interpretations.
