is not quite "academic" enough and they want me to come up with ways to be

the rest of the students on campus will be doing homework and since this is
an accredited course).

Can anyone suggest a text that could be assigned to supplement a course like
this OR come up with another way to make this more academic in nature? I
need to rewrite the proposal by Tuesday, or come up with something else,
entirely....

Dear Sharon,
Could you have your students conduct an interview with a practicing "artist"
such as an architect, designer, etc. and then write an in depth report? It
is a field that has so much variety and the paths can have twists, ie
illustrator turned interior designer. I had an assignment in high school to
interview someone OVER age 85 and it was quite memorable. Is this academic
enough?
