Update 27 Oct 2015

I'm pretty ill today, so face to face class is cancelled. Instead, get started on the StyleInMicroMessages project. I'll try to post the complete project by Wednesday, but a draft to get started with will be up by late afternoon Tuesday.

Deadline - Fri 30 Oct Set up a Storify account. Have a page created and 20 artifacts selected. Add a link to your Storify page to your wiki name page so we can all get to your work. Start making notes and fashioning the micro-analyses of your selection. On Friday, I will look in and may leave you side notes so you can work on the micro-analyses further for Tuesday.

Deadline - class time, 3 Nov First pass at stylistics micro-analyses ready to look at and discuss.

I'm also still reviewing Arguments in Two Websites projects. I hope to finish them by the end of the day Wednesday.

to get a sense of how you might address micro-analyses and style

I'm developing an example Story to suggest how you might approach the problem. Have a look at Style in Micro-Messages. This will be developing over the next week.

Project Evaluation

I'll be reviewing and evaluating your projects between 21 - 27 Oct.

If you have made significant revisions to any of your summaries and would like me to re-evaluate them, highlight the summaries you have changed. Use the Highlight markup: Format Bar > down arrows > Highlight. Or use bold markup to highlight the material.
