Project by exam time, Wednesday, May 15

that you posted on the discussion
board previously. If it is at a different URL, please update
the message in the discussion area "URLs of Client Project"
with the new URL by choosing the "edit" option in the header
of your old message. Naturally, if you didn't post a URL previously,
do so by 6 p.m. in that discussion area.

Journal Entry # 14. Read through the criteria.for the last two projects carefully. Then go back through each list, and "rate" each criterion according to how challenging or difficult you see it being, relative to the others, using the four-part grid: running from "NA" for "Not A problem," up to "EX" for "EXtremely challenging." Then, in a journal entry, try "freewriting" (thinking on paper) about the challenges of one or two of the criteria, and how you might better make use of it to improve your project. Try working through some potential problems and solutions.(5/8/02)
Journals should be turned in by Friday, May 10 at noon in my mailbox (420 Humanities, open weekdays between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m.)
