A significant part of your grade this semester is the creation of a full web site. What's important here is not that you finish every single detail; more important is providing an overall framework on which you might build after class has been completed. And although I wish I could simply say, "make a site," and leave it to you to decide the content, I know that without a strict definition of exactly what I'm looking for, students tend to let the project slide, ultimately resulting in a less-than-stellar presentation.
