While meeting today, we first created a list of possible interview questions for our client(s). The paper wheel will provide MLA citation rules, but it's important that we first know the specific audience of the product. This will help inform us about which citation rules to include on the wheel. We will also ask the client(s) about the preferred dimensions of the paper wheel and, specifically, what type of materials to use. A couple team members began to look for tutorials online about how to make the paper wheel. We came across a page on ehow.com (http://www.ehow.com/how_5768085_make-paper-wheels.html) that was geared more towards children and seemed overly simplistic. Given the lack of resources, creating the paper wheel will be up to us.
Our group also jotted down a preliminary list of MLA rules that we think undergraduates would most often use. Dr. Blakeley loaned us his textbook to help with this. So far, our list includes 32 citation rules, which we'd like to condense to about 20. It might be helpful if the citation rules are grouped based on the type of source - print, multimedia, etc.
Moving forward, we will continue to finalize the interview questions and trim down the number of citation rules. Sarah plans to begin working on the design and layout of the paper wheel.
