Take the public presentation of your work for this course seriously. We will publish our sites on a public server. Once your group figures out a topic and question to focus on for the website, start to consider the content you will make. There are four total HTML quizzes.

Content about something specific that students taking this course would benefit from knowing. As noted above, each group MUST create and add content to their webpage like infographics, videos, graphs, charts, and written text.
A group reflection about what each of you learned from this project and the decisions and composing processes involved in creating the project. Turn this in as a separate word document attachment. What did you produce, and does it create value for your users? This involves what you actually do with your CSS pages. Font styles, sizes, color, etc.
