What Makes a Website Great?

Students will Explore websites from TIME's List of 50 Best Websites - and will choose 3 websites from different categories to examine and compare.
Students will use an analytical chart to discover what "works" for these websites in the following categories:
  1. Basic Aesthetic Design
    1. PARC
    2. Color
    3. Fonts/Type
  2. Content and Delivery
  3. Visual Best Practices
  4. Verbal (Textual) Best Practices
  5. Organization and Functionality
  6. Interactivity
Students will discuss their findings in a blog post - and will, with the collaboration of the class, develop a list of "best practices" from their research. They will use this list to inform the composition of their own website project.
