6. How did your activities and research for this Doors to Diplomacy Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
Our research and activities for this Doors to Diplomacy project support content standards, required coursework, and curriculum requirements by helping us be prepared for the trials and tribulations of our project over Arts and Culture in 2011. We have had to do tons research over the arts and culture and it has helped me appreciate how encouraged this subject is. The required coursework gets sometimes tedious but I know it is meant to help improve our project and quality of work. We all have enjoyed this project immensely. All of these factors have supported our project and made it a lot better whether in the website or our work ethic.
