In the process of creating your work, students should ask themselves:
What format do you want your presentation to take?
Keep in mind that some portion of it must be digital and able to be posted on the blog.
Though both Courtney and Lee like this and appreciate the students' assistance in creating it, we reserve the right to amend or alter as necessary.
