4. Web Portfolios:

5. Over the weekend, explore which of these platforms you want to use to create your portfolio. Think about why.

To start, you will need to create the following pages: a home page, biography, projects page, and contact information. You'll have lots of time to play around with this over the semester, so feel free to do so. Design and redesign, customize and recustomize. Email me a link to your portfolio site with the subject line "3303 Web Portfolio." This will count as the first check for your portfolio. (Remember they can be public, private, or unlisted)

At a minimum for next week, you need a section that has your reflection (we'll talk about this more on Tue and will upload your first portfolio). It could be text based, or it could be formatted in a different manner).

IF you are using wordpress:

Don't worry about doing it wrong. It's a learning experience. Play around.

4. Peer review

  • Read your document aloud
  • Follow along
  • Look for and note:
    • Things you liked:
    • Things you'd like to know more about
    • Editorial stuff
  • Mange time to you spend an equal amount of time on each author's work

The goal is to be thorough, not to get done quickly.
