7C SWA CityProjects Web Project and Rubric:

Take all of your CityProject data and create an amazing WordPress.com page. You will create a site with a static homepage and clickable (linked) pages guiding us to various data (maps, top 10…).

Find PROJECT tasks and due dates here: swa-cityprojects-examples-1

Make sure to include ALL of the required data. Each page should have at least 1 amazing image to illustrate your data. When including links, make sure they work and use the option for them to open in a separate window.

Use this student work as an example: https://visitistanbulguide.wordpress.com/

or https://visitjerusalemweb.wordpress.com/

But, add your own style and creativity!

Project completion: 8.4 on GEO class (whatever you have with Mr.Patrick that day)
