For next week's class, please read the following two articles. The first article is the same one that appeared in an earlier post. It goes into a little more detail about diagramming websites. After our class discussions, it should be mostly review.
The second article is a great short summary of wireframes. It explains what they are, what purpose they serve, and how they fit into the design process.
There is no written homework due for the next class, but you should be prepared to discuss and apply the concepts in these two articles.
