      1. Search the Internet for sites that DON’T respect four or more of the six Principles of UI Design. We will call these sites Worst of the Web.

      2. Select one Worst of the Web site from the ones you researched and copy the site’s URL (the web address).

      3. In Blackboard, Go to Discussion Board / Class 2: Worst of the Web Discussion and Create a New Thread.

      4. Paste your chosen Worst of the Web URL in the thread you just created.

      5. Observe your Worst of the Web site closely and answer the following questions:

      a. How does the site makes you feel?
      b. Why is the site making you feel like that?
      c. What are the Principles of UI Design being broken and how are they broken? You need to identify at least four Principles of UI Design.
