My trip to the Sistine Chapel

TRAVEL PROJECTThis travel project begins with your selection of a destination in the world, a place you have always dreamed of going. After your country has been determined, select a specific city or area in the country where there is architecture, sculpture, or painting of art historical significance. SELECT ONLY ONE OBJECT, NOT AN ENTIRE MUSEUM. If you conduct an internet search of your country, art historical objects will most likely be discussed. Research your travel costs and put that information in the introductory portion of your paper. The written travel project will be composed of four parts: TheWorks Cited, the outline, the text, and the imagery. These four parts will be submitted as the final travel project. These parts should be submitted typed or wordprocessed andshould be in the proper format with notation to document your sources. A cover page should be included, and a binder is welcome.NO plagiarizing, please.If you do not give your sources within the body of the paper, it is plagiarism.You must use MLA style parenthetical notes after each paragraph or group of paragraphs to reveal your source of information by writing the author’s last name and page number(s).I could then go to your Works Cited page and look up that information for myself.I will not accept work that does not have sources included.WHAT IS MLA DOCUMENTATION STYLE?In MLA documentation style, you acknowledge your sources by keying brief parenthetical citations in your text to an alphabetical list of works that appears at the end of the paper. The parenthetical citation that concludes the following sentence is typical of MLA style.Ancient writers attributed the invention of the monochord to Pythagoras, who lived in the sixth century B.C.E.(Marcuse 197).The citation “(Marcuse 197)” tells readers that the information in the sentence was derived from page 197 of a work by an author named Marcuse. If readers want more information about this source, they can turn to the works-cited (bibliography) list, where, under the name Marcuse, they would find the following information.Marcuse, Sibyl. A Survey of Musical Instruments. New York: Harper, 1975.(from Gibaldi, Joseph. MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, 5th ed.)1. Works Cited:You need to submit at least 10 sources for your Travel Project research, and at least one must be from a book (or periodical) other than your textbook.Please use the data bases available from our library.There are six very fine free databases for your use.Also, search for .net, .edu and .org sources.Do not limit yourself to .com sources.You can search for these using Google if you type in your subject followed by the .edu or .org .Do not use Wikipedia or encyclopedias as a source.You can request books on your topic from theTCCCollege library.If you are searching for a book on just one building or painting and do not find one in ourlibrary, you need to do a wider search. If, for instance, you are researching the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, Turkey, search for Islamic architecture, and Istanbul.You probably will not find a book locally on the Blue Mosque only.The sources are alphabetized by author’s last name. If the author’s name is unknown, alphabetize by the subject line. All internet sources must include at least a subject line in addition to the URL.Second line of an entry should be indented5 spaces. Titles of works of art are italicized or underlined.2. Outline:This should be only an outline, no sentences.

Be sure you cite your sources with author’s last name and page number of book OR website address enclosed in parentheses. Check spelling, grammar. The emphasis in the text should be on the art historical object.You might spend the first page on travel plans and costs, then a paragraph or two on the history of the city or country you have chosen, and the remaining pages on the art historical object. 4.
