You have been hired to develop a Web page by Doc Savage’s AP History classes. Your grade will depend on the evaluation of your client. Are you an efficient worker who knows how to design a Web page? Do you listen to the needs of your client? Did you produce a product they are proud of? Is your product creative and unique? Would they hire you again? You will be paid anywhere from $50 points (poor) to $100 points (excellent) for your work.


When working with a client you do not question their ideas, as they may fire you. Their content is a work in progress and since it is dynamic, you need to set up ongoing communication. You should end up with a webpage that has at least two paragraphs about an historical topic, web addresses to look for more information, and graphics that defines or clarifies the topic. To add to that, your client researched an artifact, of which they took a picture and then wrote two paragraphs – one a description of the artifact, and the other paragraph about how it fit into their other historical research.
