Extended Project
Artifact Evaluation Presentation

Stage 2 - Planning
Stage 3 - The Artifact
Stage 4 - Evaluation
Stage 1 - Research
HOW?
First of all I designed a timeline and a breakdown of the route I was going to take to make my extended project happen in the form of a log.

1. Find the resources I could use to collect sources of information from, for example the internet or the library.

2. I then selected a range of sources from each resource, such as books and articles.

3. I then gathered the relevant information from each source, to do this i designed a writing source catalogue and a drawing source catalogue where I labeled each source with a number or a letter.

4. I then used my complied information to plan and then write my short novel (artifact) and at the end I put in footnotes to illustrate one example of how I used each source.
What did I learn while completing this section?

To find and select the correct sources on my initiative in order to make the best story that I could.
To then analyse those sources to gather only the information I needed and to then make it assessable so I could refer back to it (Partly why I did the analysing along side the beginning of the write up as it seemed easier to apply knowledge this way) This is how I ended up with the catalogue idea.
I also learnt how to apply the knowledge that I found myself to a piece of writing without any prompts to produce something I was pleased with. (To do this I used footnotes and annotation to show a example of how that source helped me write or draw that section)
My Strengths and Weaknesses

A particular strength, I felt, was the way I managed to organise my sources into labeled catalogues that I could reference.
Another success was the Creative Writing Course at Hills Road which added up to 10 hours and was extremely helpful.
A weakness includes how I managed to get one magazine and in the future I would try to get more along with a few extra websites despite the fact they were not nearly as helpful as books.
In the future I would try and do even more cross referencing than I did this time to show how I collected a good range of information.
How?

1. Firstly I thought of some ideas and selected which story plan I thought would work the best.

2. I then followed the advice of my sources and my own initiative to undertake a series planning steps, for example the story timeline, chapter breakdown and character profiles. This also included experimenting with drawing equipment and practicing drawing technique in general.

3. I also noted down some of my inspirations I got for my story.
What did I learn while completing this section?

To establish a selection of ideas, to keep my options open, that I could chose from to get the best result for my artifact.
I then learnt to focus in on that idea to break it down firstly on to a timeline and then to chapter breakdown from start to finish in good detail.
From my sources I also learnt how to breakdown my characters enough that I get them across the way I wanted in the story.
I massively increased my ability and knowledge about drawing which I taught to myself through using my sources.
I also wrote down my inspirations, something had never previously considered in much depth.
My strengths and Weaknesses

I felt my chapter breakdown went very well and that I then managed to follow and adapt it so that it worked well when it was actually written.
The practice pieces I did with the Creative Writing course helped my get into the practice of important things also helped my get the best product I could.
A weakness I included not numbering my pages which would have made this section and the section before much easier to navigate.
In the future I would also expand further on my inspirations document of where I got certain ideas from.
How?

This stage involved using my newly sourced knowledge and my imagination to write my short novel story with a selection of illustrations.
Once it was finished I wrote up my artifact commentary summing up the process of this stage.
What did I learn while completing this stage?

While writing my story I learnt how to apply the knowledge I had gathered from my sources on how to write effectively.
My punctuation and turn of phrase improved as I wrote more and more.
I ended up writing more than I have ever written (19,500 words) for one piece of writing so this has definitely improved the speed and quality that I can now write at.
I also designed my final drawing, making the decision to only use pencil and a bit of pen as that is what I felt I could use most effectively, particularly after I learnt how to use different sorts of pencils.
I also learnt that I now have the relevant skills to finish a story from start to finish.
My strengths and weaknesses

I was pleased with how effectively getting someone else to read through my work went as I ensured I filtered out any mistakes or things that the reader would find hard to comprehend.
I was also pleased with how I presented my theme through was hopefully an engaging story.
I also felt that changing my location for the setting of my story worked well and was very necessary for success.
If I were to do it again I would try and do some more illustrations using other drawing tools, perhaps with a bit more colour, although I thought white and grey with only dashes of colour worked well on this occasion.
Another improvement would be to improve my prologue and epilogue as I found those very difficult to get just right. (I did decide to rewrite them at the end)
How?

1. My first stage of evaluation came with my research section when I evaluated a selection of my sources where I analysed there reliability and cross referenced my most common finding.

2. My second stage of evaluation was partly addressed in my artifact commentary that I did with my artifact.

3. The third stage of evaluation is this prezi where I have evaluated the whole process of my extended project through highlighting what I have learnt.
What did I learn while completing this section?

To effectively compare and contrast different sources to indentify which sources were useful and which were not as useful.
To evaluate reliability of sources I had collected myself.
To cross reference particular information across my sources and then then realise that I had collected enough sources to complete my story.
To then write up a commentary that included evaluation of my artifact after its completion.
Finally, I expanded my skills in using this software Prezi and how to evaluate my project as a whole through designing this presentation.
My strengths and weaknesses

I felt that one strength included how gave a brief evaluation for every source that used in my writing sources catalogue.
I also felt that evaluating one typr of each source ensured I got a good range of in depth evaluation of reliability.
A weakness, as I mentioned under the research section was that I feel more cross referencing should be done.
Across the project as a whole I feel that in the future I should read through every single paragraph in my project for errors and mistakes as this something i always forget to do.
ANY QUESTIONS?
