Schedule for Halal Carts website project (bold indicates a hard deadline):

Wed 4/19 – Initial plans established. Each group should have a timeline and rough outline of their research plan, including:

  1.  Outside research (articles, books, etc.). There have been many articles written about Halal Carts, yet many of these deal with superficial aspects (where’s the best one? etc.). Still, see what’s already been written.
  2. Plans for interviews – who, what, where, when, how many?
  3. A list of basic questions that will be asked of interviewees, including what kinds of answers you expect to get and how those answers might be used.
  4. Main agenda and questions established
