Nature in the City, Collin Fischer
This is my thesis: Nature is an essential human need especially within a city because it allows for one; to escape the hectic atmosphere of urban society, to reconnect with where humans originally came from, and to get a break from working in an urban environment.
The directions from my teacher are written below. Don’t disappoint me!…
These are the sources and pages of sources to be read

“Research Project: The objective of the Research Project is to delve deeper into one of the topics raised in the lectures and readings. Students will write a 1,500 word (6 pages double-spaced Times Roman 12 points, submitted as Word documents with .docx extension) “field essay” that critically addresses the chosen topic. The page count is not inclusive of images. The topic needs to be selected from among the keywords that we will cover in the course. A list of keywords—“What I Expect You to Learn”–is included at the end of this syllabus.
Follow these steps for the Research Project:
1. Select one of the several articles from the Required or Suggested Readings, marked by an asterisk (*) in the syllabus, to study your chosen topic. This topic should be something that interests you, and something about which you’d want to know more.
2. The readings included in the syllabus are scholarly articles/essays that have substantial bibliographies. Select between 3 to 6 of these sources from the bibliography of the article that will help you dig deeper into the topic, making sure you can access these sources online. Your goal is to learn something specific about the cultural landscape of a place taking the keyword as an entrée into the subject.
3. Read these sources carefully and take notes about what you have learned from these sources. You may use additional sources beyond the given bibliography, but at least 3 sources must be from your selected article.
4. Write a critical interpretive essay that explains how the topic is addressed in these works in terms of (a) architecture and space (b) approach to the topic, (c) the kind of evidence used, (d) how the evidence is interpreted, (e) the author’s argument, (f) contribution to elucidating the subject. Consider the questions that remain to be asked in these sources. Conclude with a statement about what else could be pursued in terms of research, that is what questions remain to be addressed in these writings. Please note that you are being asked to write an original synthetic essay with an argument; you are not merely answering questions (a)…(f). Your argument doesn’t need to be earth-shattering; it needs to be thoughtful.
5. Make sure you cite your sources, using any one kind of style guide (Chicago, Harvard, MLA). Please note: using someone else’s work without citation is tantamount to plagiarism, and is grounds for failing the course.
6. Proofread carefully. Make sure your essay is free of spelling mistakes and typos.
7. You may use images as appropriate. Images must have proper captions and citations.
More details will be discussed in class.
A one-page proposal for the Research Project us due on Thu April 16, 6pm PDT. It must include the topic, the sources to be used, and a sense of the potential argument.
A draft of the Research Project, at least 4-pages long, is due on Thu May 7, 6pm PDT. The draft must contain evidence of research and a tentative argument. In addition to the text, you may include images with proper captions.
The final Research Project is due on Thu May 28, 6pm PDT. In addition to the text, you may include images with proper captions and citations. The Research Project will be evaluated on the basis of the quality of your research and writing, and the plausibility of your argument.”
