PostSubject: Informative Essay Proposal - Rebecca   Thu Nov 01, 2012 9:51 pm

hey folks. just looking for some feedback (as usual) on my essay proposal.
should i focus it more on JUST the history of the printing press? although i suppose, really, it is all part of the "history of the printing press". should i frame it more like that though? or is this specific and clear enough as is?




My informative essay will be on the topic of Johannes Gutenberg’s invention of the printing press and how the printing press drastically transformed and affected the role of the printed word. This essay will provide a brief history of how the “printed word” was transcribed and what it was used for. It will look at how Gutenberg built the first printing press, with his expertise as a goldsmith, using metal techniques to create movable type (Hayes, D., 2002) and what he produced. From this, the essay will explain how the printing press made the printed word more accessible for Europeans during the fifteenth century and in turn had an effect not only on literacy, but also on knowledge. In what ways did the printing press influence these changes? How exactly did it affect literacy and knowledge in the fifteenth century? These are the questions that will be explored and answered in my informative essay.

Hi rebmon177,

great idea I would stick to just the history and if you answer the questions you came up with already you should do well.

I hope that will help and lets see what others have to say Smile

Good luck flower

PostSubject: The Story of Acrylics Proposal   Fri Nov 02, 2012 12:19 pm

So I wanted to post my proposal too and Rebmon177, feel free to comment as well Wink



Art professionals have been using Oil, Watercolour, Charcoal, in their art making process for centuries, yet nowadays Acrylics seemed to have overtaken the

industry. With my essay I wish to explore as to where exactly did this new medium come from? How has it evolved and revolutionized the creative world?

Which painters embraced the new tool to create their art.? What are the benefits of Acrylics? Why has it become so popular?



Its very short and less than 8 sentences...maybe I have to add and think some more... scratch

Anyway, looking forward to hear from you guys afro

Thank you

Tata jocolor

Other than a few grammatical things, your proposal sounds pretty good to me Tami.
You might want to post it on the main Peer Review and Project Posting board though as a new topic, so people have easier access to it to provide feedback.

Cheers!
