I decided to look at Slave Codes and the Nat Turner articles in Wikipedia.  I had written a paper on the relationship between a particular law and the insurrection of 1831 by Nat Turner and thought that my previous knowledge of the topic would assist me in evaluating the Wiki site.  The Slave Code section was […]

Moving into the sixth week…we have a busy schedule.  The group has updated and changed the project contract, and it should be sent to Dr. McClurken tonight.  Dr. Preston has provided us with an outline to the JWPW (1st site), and I adjusted the language in the contract to reflect this outline.  It appears as […]

Andrea and Kelly put the finishing touches on the contract last night and sent notification to Dr. McClurken.  I think we are on the right track in our approach, but need to become more definitive on the second site.  I think inspiration and clarity will come once the group starts working with the programs and documents.    I’ve […]

Finished preliminary draft of contract for website, which included all Dr. Preston’s specifications, and posted it on google docs for the rest of the group to review.  I’m not sure how to submit milestones.  I’m thinking that the timeline might be a good way of presenting it, but it depends on whether we can acclimate […]

Patrick and Jerry conducted class today and covered some additional options in Omeka and google documents.  I spoke to Patrick before class expressing the problems that I was experiencing with some of the timelines that I had been experimenting with; namely, the date criteria required completion of the date in the form of mm/dd/yyyy, and […]

JM Papers Update

The group got together this week and began discussing the tools, and the application to our project.  At this point I can visualize using WordPress to accommodate the parent page (I hope that is the right term) with Omeka supporting it.  I’ve looked at several different timelines, but I think the group needs to discuss […]
