Detailed Description of Project, including cost:
For my senior project, I will write a short, informative book about Indian culture for children. I will
write brief descriptions of different traditions and rituals and their symbolism. Also, I will research
Indian mythological and religious stories and translate them into English to include in the book. I
will edit it with help from my mentor, teachers and peers and have it professionally bound.
Approximate Total Cost: $30.00
How is the work a “stretch” for you?
This project would be a stretch for me because it involves a great deal of discipline to complete
without haste. It requires patience and being able to think and write clearly and creatively for long
periods of time. Editing the manuscript will also require me to have a good command over grammar.
Moreover, this project would be a challenge because it needs meticulousness (something I lack).
Persuasive research: (What will you persuade your reader to understand or believe?)
I plan to persuade my reader to understand the importance of reading and exposure to books and
other forms of literature for child development and its beneficial effects on academic performance
later on in life.
What sources for your paper topic do you plan to investigate?
What interviews do you plan?
I plan to interview one of the people in charge of the Literacy Festival of Columbus.
