Today we started our Virtual Medea project. If you were absent, don’t worry. I’ll get you caught up tomorrow.
This will be an in class project
The Virtual Medea Project
What is a virtual version of Medea was living on your iPad? What kind of questions would she ask? How would she react to your responses? We will use our iPads and Swift Playgrounds to create virtual Medea projects. I will show you how to use “conditional code” to create questions and responses to binary questions.
Writing and coding have a lot in common. Both writing and coding require planning. Before creating an app a good coder maps out the entire program before he writes a single line of code. As a writer, you should do the same thing with your essays. In coding, we will practice debugging (going through our code to find the errors). We do the same thing when we proofread our essays. When we write, we should seek feedback from our peers. Coding should be the same thing. This is why we’ll have an “ask three then me” policy on this project. Before you came to me with a coding question, you have to ask three classmates first.
Your program should move through a series of 5 questions. Each question is worth 20 points:
Does the program run through both a Y & N response? (5 points)
Does the question represent Medea from the context of the play? (5 points)
Does the question contain relevant textual evidence? (5 points)
Does the question makes sense both grammatically and mechanical? (5 points)
You will submit your final project using email.
