This self-critique is an important part of your project (and
grade) and reflects the learning process
you went through. Please spend serious time preparing it and make it
no longer than 1000 words. Post the self-critique to your blog.

On the self-critique, please include the following information:
1. Title of your project
2. Main idea that you started with
3. Source of the idea and its importance to you
4. Key emotion or experience that you wanted your audience to experience
5. Brief, clear synopsis of the story
6. Theme or premise of the piece that you discovered after finishing it
7. Strengths of the project. Look for these in all areas including process.
8. Problem areas. Include notes on your own and others suggestions for improvements. What can be done to resolve/improve problem areas.
9. Journal-type notes on your own learning process, discoveries and
frustrations. Frustrations should not be the focus of your self-critique -- aka this is not a rant or self-pity party.
