HUM 112 – Assignments and Rubrics
Assignment 1: Essay
Due Week 4 and worth 100 points
Choose one (1) of the three reading selections from the list of topic choices below. Read the selection in
the textbook. Write a three to four (3-4) paragraph essay (250 words) which analyzes the “surprise
ending” of the reading selection.
Topic Choices:
• Reading selection from Descartes’ Discourse on the Method (Part IV). Descartes begins with the
problem of being able to prove his own existence but ends up with an argument proving the
existence of God.
• Reading selection from Swift’s A Modest Proposal. Swift begins with offering the solution that the
English could do things which might solve the problem of over-population and the mistreatment of
citizens in Ireland and ends by offering the solution that an internal change in the Irish
government would best solve the problem of over-population and a populace victimized by its
own government.
• Two reading selections from Voltaire’s Candide. The story begins by acknowledging the
foolishness of the superstitious traditions held by the people in the city of Lisbon but ends by
confirming Voltaire’s belief that religion in general is equally based in false superstitions.
For the reading selection you choose:
1. Clearly state in your own words the “surprise ending” in the reading you selected. Identify the
point in the reading when you realized that the ending would be different from what the beginning
of the reading suggested that it would be.
2. Since you were expecting a different ending, evaluate how successful the author was in
convincing you to accept the validity of the “surprise ending” that was not clearly suggested at the
beginning.
Your assignment must:
• Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all
sides; citations and references must follow APA Style format. Check with your professor for any
additional instructions.
• Include a cover page containing the tile of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s
name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in
the required assignment page length.
The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:
• Explain how key social, cultural, and artistic contributions contribute to historical changes.
• Explain the importance of situating a society’s cultural and artistic expressions within a historical
context.
• Examine the influences of intellectual, religious, political, and socio-economic forces on social,
cultural, and artistic expressions.
• Identify major historical developments in world cultures from the Renaissance to the
contemporary period.
• Use technology and information resources to research issues in the study of world cultures.
• Write clearly and concisely about world cultures using proper writing mechanics.

Assignment 2: Project Paper
Due Week 8 and worth 200 points
HUM 112 – Assignments and Rubrics
The Project Paper focuses on a suggested topic related to art, architecture, history, music, or literature.
The project will reflect your views and interpretation of the topic. This project is designed to help you
stretch your mind and your abilities to be the creative, innovative, and critical thinker you already are!
Choose one (1) of the topics from the list of topic choices below. Read the topic carefully. Write a three to
four (3-4) page paper (750-1,000 words) that responds to each of the items described in the topic.
For the topic you choose:
1. Support your ideas with specific, illustrative examples. If there are questions or points associated
with your chosen topic, be sure to answer all of the listed questions and address all of the items in
that topic. If your topic asks you to do several things related to the topic, be sure to do each of the
things listed.
2. While some of the topics tend to lend themselves toward particular writing genres, you are not
restricted to the specific format suggested for the individual topic. For example, you may do an
“interview,” a “proposal,” a “letter,” a “short story,” a “blog,” an “essay,” an “article,” or any other
written genre for almost any of the topics. The project is intended to be fun as well as informative,
so feel free to be creative with the delivery of your information.
3. Use at least two (2) sources besides the textbook, which counts as one (1) source.
Topic choices (pick 1):
• Office Art Memo. Memorandum. Your boss, who knows you’ve been taking a humanities class
since he pays for your tuition reimbursement, has tasked you with managing the art budget for
your company, expecting you to choose various pieces of art for the new corporate offices.
(Note: Replicas of the works are acceptable since they are more cost-efficient and you are
working on a budget.) (1) Identify three examples of 20 th century Impressionist painting or
sculpture and three Post-Impressionist works. Explain how the six pieces of art fall into these two
styles. (2) In a memo, describe the appearance of your six choices to your CEO so he or she will
know what the art looks like and where it would be placed in the corporate offices. (3) Explain
why each piece is considered to be historically significant. (4) Explain how each piece “fits” your
company’s overall (or desired) corporate image. Keep in mind that a piece of art is supposed to
“say” something about the owner, so describe what would these pieces of art say about your
company.
• New Composition. Speech. Your uncle’s birthday is in two months, and everyone knows that he
loves almost all kinds of music. As a birthday gift for him, you want to have a special piece of
music composed in his honor which will be played at a family birthday celebration. Write a speech
that you will make to the composer’s agent. (1) Narrow your choices down to three composers
you’ve studied in this course. Choose one of the composers and explain why you want him to
write the “birthday present” music. (2) Explain why the other two composers were ultimately not
selected. (3) Specifically identify the musical elements in the composer’s style that you would like
to be included in the new music written for your uncle. Finally, (4) describe what sort of emotion is
generated by listening to the works of your selected composer; in other words, what do you want
your uncle to “feel” as he hears the music, and why is this composer so perfect for this
composition?
• Harlem Renaissance Poets. Essay & Poem. Choose two poems by different authors from the
Harlem Renaissance. Write an essay that (1) describes each author’s role and importance within
the Harlem Renaissance. (2) Identify the elements in each of their poems in which you see
evidence of the “double-consciousness” being expressed by each author. (3) Describe the
primary themes you see in the poetry written during this time period, referring to specific lines in
