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.

Storify will automatically save your work periodicallY, but you will need to click Publish to make updates visible to the rest of us.
