Now it is time to submit a final version of your paper. For complete details on the Media Analysis Project please see the Media Analysis Project – Introduction page in Week 03.
Double-check it one last time for proper mechanics (clear, concise, and complete sentences and paragraphs), proper spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Make sure that in addition to the 6-8 pages of text that you include a properly formatted references page with all sources cited in SPA format.
This week, you were introduced to six analytical perspectives for analyzing media. These perspectives form the foundation for your Media Analysis Project (MAP). Over the next three weeks, you will analyze a visual work from any media (print, film, television, Internet), of your own choosing.
Your final project is due in Week 05. There will be individual assignments along the way. The week they are due is noted in the time line below.

Your analysis must encompass all six perspectives. This will be a detailed analysis consisting of 6-8 written pages. You must also use four credible academic sources in addition to the media itself. All sources must be cited in-text as well as on a reference page using standard SPA format. Information on using SPA is available on the Online Library which is accessible through the Resources tab. Your final paper must include proper mechanics (clear, concise, and complete sentences and paragraphs), proper spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
