Course Project

The course project is a major component of this course. You have been researching either a historical figure or interview a community member with domesticated ungulate experience. This week you will finalize your presentation to share with your peers. The final form of your presentation is up to you. You can create a film or PowerPoint presentation and share via YouTube, a Prezi, or a more formal research paper. Please see examples of previous projects on the Student Projects page. Your final work will be featured on this page for future offerings of the course! For help on getting your project posted contact Darrell Blodgett (dsblodgett@alaska.edu).
