Young Women's Tech
Throughout the course you will explore history and contemporary culture as it relates to and reflects upon young women. You will gain the skills necessary to produce your research as an online magazine. We will produce two issues, titled and designed by you, for you, and about you. Each individual student will be expected to contribute content for each issue, and maintain a personal portfolio for grading. We will also read several novels written by and about Women, and post book reports online.
The course consists of five units:
Daily assignments, in and out of class, will be kept in your personal portfolio for each unit, and uploaded to the web for grading. Each unit will require a final project to be included in your portfolio as well. The final projects consist of a written article and art work response to the area of study.
All work for this class will be done on the computer, stored in your
class document folder and Web folders.
