Just for those of you following along outside of the class itself, check out the start pages of each of the four groups.  They’re all getting close to being finished (the final due date is next Tuesday). 1) Historical Marker Project — [Creators: Elle W., Whitney H., Jennifer F., Shannon H., Amy B.] 2) James […]

See this post for more information about themes that might be more suited to using for a website-style presentation.
