With some basic online research, propose a theme and 3-5 possible subthemes for your chosen site. Make sure the themes meet the requirements of a good theme, based on our work in class and the Sam Ham reading. Review the readings first. You may also include notes on any topics that you think are important to consider.
Submit a 1-page document, for on-screen presentation, that shows the themes and subthemes.
Make sure your name, the date and the name of the course is present on your 1-page presentation. You do not have to use any images in the presentation.
Due: 6PM, Wednesday March 31. Upload the PDF file to Brightspace.

Late assignment penalties
For this assignment, late submissions will be penalized at 10% of the total mark (that is, if an assignment is graded out of 10, you will lose 1 point per day, starting on the due date.)
A 1-hour grace period after the assignment due time will be given to avoid any technical issues related to internet speed resulting in late assignment penalties.
The best approach, however, is to submit work early.
