  • Option 4 :Research and Gathering . Do you have to do any research or find resources for your self-portrait? Think about artifacts you may wish to include: videos, links to news articles, locations for maps, etc. You may spend this time finding and documenting these resources.
  • Option 5 :Other? What other tasks do you have to accomplish? Do you have to draw or otherwise create images for your self-portrait? Do you have to transcribe any interviews you conducted? Do you have to record an audio version of a written chapter?
