The Explorer Quest is an opportunity to explore a music-related topic you are interested in learning more about. You are encouraged to choose a topic that will benefit you professionally (ie: Research how music relates to your field of study, submit a project you can use as a sample for grad. school applications, etc) or personally (ie: Learn an instrument, learn a song, etc.). You are fairly free in choosing a topic.

 

The amount of XP you earn will be determined by three components:

  1. The Project Itself (max 100 XP)
  2. Works Cited (max 50 XP)
  • Self-Reflection (max 50 XP)

 

  1. The Project Itself
  • Written Project: Double-spaced, size 11 or 12 font, 2+ pages
    1. Write a short story from the perspective of someone living in a particular decade, an instrument tracing its evolution, a particular musician, etc.
    2. Write a journalism article on your topic.
    3. Write a literature review of various books/articles related to your topic.
    4. Read and summarize a music-related book. What did you learn? Be critical of the book and include your opinion.
    5. Write a research paper.
    6. If you are a parent, learn about music education techniques and try them out on your child. Write about the experience. You’ve just discovered an easter egg. Email Prof. S explaining a possible idea for your Explorer Quest, or if you need suggestions, ask.
    7. If you have an elderly relative with Dementia or Alzheimers, learn about music therapy techniques and try them out on your relative. Write about the experience.

 

*This should NOT be a stressful project. I expect quality work regardless of project format, but if you are having a jam-packed semester, let me know and we’ll work to make sure this isn’t just another assignment on the pile. I know what it’s like to be a student!

 

  1. Works Cited

 

Regardless of format, you are expected to properly cite at least five sources with your project (exceptions apply – see me for details).  Audio and video examples count as sources but must be cited properly.

 

Citations should come from reputable sources. I suggest searching for sources through www.scholar.google.com rather than conducting regular Google searches.

 

You may use MLA, APA, or Chicago format for your works cited page. For more information on how to properly cite sources, please see Brooklyn College (http://libguides.brooklyn.cuny.edu/cite) or Purdue’s webpage (https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/section/2/).

 

  • Self-Reflection – 1 page, double-spaced, size 11 or 12 font

 

Regardless of format, you are expected to submit a self-reflection with your project. The reflection is a critique of your own work – what you did well, how you can improve, what you learned along the way, if/how you benefitted from this project, etc.

 

The reflection also serves as your opportunity to let me know what feedback you’d like and what I should take into account when grading. If you learned a piece of music, what kind of advice would you like me to provide? If you wrote a research paper, would you like suggestions on improving grammar, content, etc.?
