Project #35 WIRED

Project:#35 WIRED

For your final reflection and project you will create a hypertext file called wired.html. This file will have many functions. The first function will be to introduce all of your work and serve as a webfolio as you will discuss, reflect on ALL of you work and you will give a brief verbal introduction to each piece. This will give you yet another opportunity to proofread your work and reconsider design features. Another function will be to carry the current theme of this country, the year of the gun in school, or violence in schools and reflect on it. You will all use the Richard Wright short story, "The Fight" as the base of the essay you will write on this reflection of the use of guns in school. Be sure to include a prologue [Romeo & Juliet] and epilogue [The Tempest] haiku to wired.html. In conclusion, you will spend the next two weeks reflecting on this year by introducing your year's work, commenting on the violence which has occurred this year, and you will use "The Fight" as a way to further reflect on this phenomenon. Reflect upon this past year. Your opinion and feelings are very important.
