Final Project: Twine Portfolios

This final assignment consists of using Twine to build and publish a hypertext portfolio of the work you’ve done in this course. This is more than just a list of links, but an hypertext essay in which you discuss the work you’ve done all semester long, connecting it with research, the textbook, and other materials discussed in class.

This final assignment has several goals:

  • To familiarize yourself with a popular online platform, Twine, and incorporate some HTML code into your writing.
  • To present all your work in a single space, organized for readability and coherence.
  • To create an attractive reading experience for readers unfamiliar with your work to explore it.
  • To contextualize your works and connect them with the research and theories discussed in class. You should make at least three citations to our textbook and other critical texts assigned in class.
