Submit one or more drafts of your web pages. Make sure you include the following:
Also, meet with the instructors and/or the T.A. to discuss your project, to get feedback for resources and revisions, and to get tips on the web-technological aspects of the project. Also, see below for further tips.
- a detailed Outline of the Structure you plan to use in your set of web-pages (main pages, subsections, etc.)
- a clear Introduction, including a compact Thesis Statement (what you hope to prove or show)
- good academic Content, but presented in small sections with plenty of Headings for quick overviews.
- growing collections of Resources (including both a bibliography of printed materials and a list of internet resources)
Stage 3 - April 18-27 (the last two weeks of classes)
In-class presentations of your group project's web-pages (ca. 20-30 minutes for each group, depending on how many different groups we end up having)
Stage 4 - Friday, May 5, 8:00 a.m. (the scheduled time for Final Exam - argh!)
