Required Reading and Resources

Project Instructions

  • Divide up your research areas and who will write what for the website and presentation. Make sure that everyone has a part in both the design process and content research. 
  • Do your individual research. You will probably look at more articles than just these 15 sources.
  • Compile your 15 sources that you will actually be using and citing in your website copy and presentation.
  • Create an annotation for each citation, using the provided Annotation Format Form
  • Alphabetize your list.
  • Compile all group members’ lists into one document. I suggest you create a Google doc to allow everyone access to this and for easy editing.
  • Remember to put each group member’s name before their list.
  • Make sure all fonts, font sizes, heading styles, etc. are consistent before turning in.
  • One group member should submit the compiled AB with your Slide Deck.

The AB is graded pass/fail on an individual basis and is not eligible for revision. All Basic Requirements must be met to receive a passing grade. Any failure to follow the directions may result in a failing grade.
