All Contracts must follow the template below:

  • Mission statement (describe project)

    • A) Describe the overall goal of your project and the intended audience

    • B) Describe the basic structure of your site and intended features.

      • You should discuss if you wish to create common elements for each page on your site — a header photo, a logo, or other features.

    • C) Another approach might be to show how each of you did research for the project or constructed the site.  If you’re willing to contribute to that process (via post or video or images), indicate that in this section.

  • Tools you plan to use

    • Everyone will be using WordPress, so that’s a given.  But what theme, plugins, layout will you use?

    • Will you be using a timeline tool?  A map?  If so, will you be using TimelineJS?   Google Maps? Something else?  [Note that even if you’re not doing your own formal timeline, you’ll need to identify key dates to include in the overarching timeline on the main site.]

    • Other tools you’ll use for your site?  What will you use to edit images?  If you’re using audio/video segments, what tools will you use?

  • Schedule of milestones (when critical pieces are ready to present)

    • Include the dates from the syllabus for first version and revised version.

      Set reasonable, realistic goals.  Take into account that some things may take longer than others.

      • Particularly big pieces might have intermediate deadlines (e.g., we will have completed half the timeline entries by March 12, the rest by March 19)
  • Who will do what? Be specific about who is doing what.
