**Peer Reviews: remember, your writing must include a mixture of physical description and your research about your chosen place—information that cannot be known through observation alone.
-works cited (proper format)?
-proper captions & citation under pictures?
-at least four senses engaged in the description?
-does the audience seem general? Could an outside reader (not in this class) understand the trajectory of the paper?
-Is the intro catchy? Do you want to keep reading?
-Are there strong transitions?
-In each paragraph, do all sentences flow from the initial topic sentence?
-Can you map the trajectory of their paper?
-Does the conclusion bring all the parts together?
-Is there a connection between the descriptive parts and the research? Does the paper flow or does it seem jumpy?
**Your final drafts of the Descriptive Web Text will be due at 5pm on Wednesday – in a new tab, like you’ve done with the reflections**
**For Wednesday, I want you to do a blog post (due at 11am) discussing map-making techniques and programs that you find most relevant to your project. Explain in detail how you would plan to use them and the visualizations you plan to make.**
**For Friday (in class), I will need a storyboard of your digital documentary – with special attention to the type of map and the digital techniques that you plan to use (as in video, recordings, etc) – you can do this analog, either as a text or as a drawing, but be prepared to present it to the class **
