PLEASE READ BEFORE STARTING!!
Here is your test for our third unit, Hindu and Buddhist Traditions.
The format is exactly the same as the format for the second unit test. Even so, please read the directions, the example, and the explanation of the example carefully.
Here are a few very important things to remember:
Please write primarily about each artwork that you choose from the list that I have provided. You may, can, and should include another artwork in your discussion, but that will be in addition to (not instead of) your detailed description and discussion of the artwork at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
For potential full credit, you need to write about four artworks of your choice from the list of ten provided. For potential extra credit, you may write about as many as (but not more than) six artworks of your choice from the list of ten provided.
Finally, please do all of your own writing. A plagiarized test receives a zero.

2DIRECTIONS / EXAMPLE / EXPLANATION / DIRECTIONS REITERATED:This is a sixteen-point test, with the possibility of severalextra credit points. Please search for the artworks listed below on the web site ofthe Metropolitan Museum of Art, also known as “The Met,” www.metmuseum.orgYou will find that you can enlarge the images, and zoom in or pan out for close-ups or wider views. For some of the artworks, particularly three-dimensional sculptures, The Met has given you more than one image, so you can seethe artwork from different vantages. You willalso find that The Met has provided its ownwritten description and discussion for each of these artworks. In some cases, The Met has provided audio and/or video clips, as well. Of course you should look at, read, listento,and/or watch all of it toget someideasfor your own writing. HOWEVER, YOU ARE ASKED NOT TO COPY AND PASTE THE MUSEUM TEXT, or any other text.Rather, you are asked to USE YOUR OWN COMBINATIONS OF WORDSin describingand discussingeach artwork as clearlyand correctly, completely and cohesively asyou can.For each of the minimum four (or as many as six) artworksthat you choose to write about, you are asked to write two clear and correct, complete, connected paragraphs—one paragraph of description, and one paragraph of discussion.Each paragraph should contain eight to ten sentences (or more). Your first paragraph will be your description/descriptiveparagraph.Your descriptiveparagraph should start with an incorporation of the basic information provided by The Met under the heading Object Details, beneath the image of the artwork. You should include, written in sentences, any and all of this information: Title, Artist (if known, with nationality and lifespan, if provided)or Manufactory, Date, Culture(if provided), Medium, and Classification (Sometimes the Medium and the Classification are the same.) For the rest of your descriptiveparagraph, as our belovedMTA tells us, “If you see something, say something.”Please try to describe the artwork clearly and completely, sothat someone who is not looking at it can imagine it quite well. Please notethe positioning of the figure(s) and/or the action, and/or the facial expression(s)and/or the hand gestures, and/orthe colors and/or the textures and/or any other details that catch your attention. Does this artwork illustrate and/or interpret a specific part or parts in the Cornerstone storiesthat youread for your homework assignments during this unit? If so, how? And even if this artwork does not present a specific scene from your Cornerstone reading, how does it portray a character or characters that youmet and learned about in your Cornerstone reading? Eight to ten sentences will probably be plenty, but less than that will be neither clear nor complete.
