Treasure Island Website

Students are to find examples of all of the listed Literary devices in the novel.
Students will need to write their own thoughts for textual examples.
Websites are largely image based and copious amounts of images should be used in
this website to make it appealing and help with visual organization.
All images used must not have any watermarks or other identifiers signifying
ownership by an author.
All images and referenced information must be correctly cited in a citation page.
The Website must have a banner that declares the site is for educational purposes
and no profit shall be derived by its creator.
In the event that a student wishes to continue to build the site after being graded for
a profit, the student should know that merely citing all images and sources of
material does not allow use in a for profit site.
The creator of a for profit site must contact the original creator of any image or
material and ask permission and retain that permission if they are going to use the
information/image in a for profit site.
