Jerz: Writing for the Internet (EL 236)


25 September 2006

Informal group presentations.

This is advance work for Project 1.

Pairs of two students should find a website that has content they would like to emulate or respond to. Informally show the class what you like about the site you've chosen, and discuss plans for your own web project.

Note that I am more intersted in the content of your website than in the design, so a simple design is better.

I'm looking for a website with a home page (with filename index.html) and at least three internal pages, as well as an additional "about" or "contact" page.

The content can be serious or silly, but it should contain substantial writing (most pages should have at least 300 words) that showcases your best online practices. We'll work methodically through this project, so you won't be expected to produce all that writing (and coding) at once. For today's presentations, just talk about what you'd like to do.

Your group website should be online and checked by 04 Oct.
