Examples of Past Semester Projects
Culture of Beer
This student, Dan Behnke, actually came and presented this powerpoint
on "The Culture of Beer in Wisconsin" to my Teaching Assistant
and me, followed by a question-and-answer session. He then turned
in a short paper to me (basically a copy of his talk) which showed
his use of primary and secondary sources.
J Hoel - Sheepshead Video
This student, Julie Hoel, created a video about her grandfather
and his friends, all from southern Wisconsin, who regularly play
Sheepshead in their retirement in Sun City, Arizona.
This powerpoint presentation on two African-American quilters in
Madison, by Melodneice Burt, demonstrates several folkloric concepts
we've talked about in class. Notice, too, that primary and secondary
sources are used in Burt's descriptions under the images; she quotes
the quilters she interviewed, and she uses scholarly sources.
This paper, by Julie Moskal, offers description and images of the
Dane County Farmer's Market.
